Strike Planned For Univ. Of Illinois Workers

Updated:

Almost 800 food and building-service workers at the University of Illinois in Champaign, plan to walk off the job for three days starting Monday, March, 11, 2013.

The union and university are at odds over a handful of issues, including wages.

Negotiations began last June and a federal mediator is now involved.

A university spokeswoman says managers will step in to serve food and do essential cleaning.
