The Faculty Association will hold an informational meeting for general membership at 11 a.m. Monday, according to an email FA President Laura Frey sent to faculty which was obtained by Central Michigan Life.

The meeting was previously scheduled to take place 7 p.m. Sunday at the Mount Pleasant High School auditorium, 1155 S. Elizabeth St. The location of the new meeting is not yet determined.

Thursday night, the FA and Central Michigan University reached a tentative three-year agreement to end the five-month contract impasse after meeting with Isabella County Circuit Court Judge Paul H. Chamberlain for about 14 hours.

A ratification vote will be scheduled for the first week of spring semester in January, according a press release by Frey and Director of Public Relations Steve Smith.

Both parties would like to extend their appreciation for the dedication of their bargaining teams as well as the facilitation efforts of Judge Chamberlain, the release stated.

The contract terms will not be released until it is ratified.
