UIC strike could point to larger economic picture of higher ed

A union representing 1,100 faculty members at the University of Illinois at Chicago began a two-day strike Tuesday. The work stoppage is forcing the cancellation of hundreds of classes. It might make a difference in talks over what would be the first collective-bargaining contracts for the faculty. The strike could also have a national impact — as many universities try to retool themselves in a time of tight budgets. WBEZ’s Chip Mitchell reports. (Photo: Flickr/eszter)
