YSU strikes a tentative deal with faculty union


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — A tentative deal has been struck between the Youngstown State University faculty union and the school.

The YSU-OEA and university have been at odds over how much members should contribute to their health insurance.

According to reports, earlier this week the two sides came to an agreement on how much members would pay.

University spokesman Ron Cole said the deal now heads to YSU’s board of trustees for consideration and possible ratification.

The 370-member union has been working without a contract since August, and just last month its membership gave the OK for the union to issue a strike notice.
