How to Endure a Lengthy Faculty Strike

Learn about the issues that led to the 20-day faculty strike by the AAUP chapter at Wright State University. We will share HR's key learnings from this experience, such as implementing an off-cycle healthcare modification, reducing academic faculty pay on a day-by-day basis, supporting the university president and trustees in changing an environment that was highly favorable to unionized faculty, and preventing issues with staff and other groups.

Emily Hamman, Director Talent Management and Staff Labor Relations, and Shari Mickey-Boggs, Associate Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, both of Wright State University Main Campus
