With the deadline just three days away, a strike has probably been averted at Black Hawk College. Members of the faculty and professional employees union had announced they would walk out on Monday, but three days of talks this week resulted in a tentative agreement.
College spokesman John Meineke says union members will vote on Monday and the board of trustees will consider the agreement at a special meeting Monday night.
No details have been released.
The union represents 160 members of the Black Hawk faculty and professional employees, and talks began a year ago.
Meineke also says employees should report to work on Monday as usual, and classes will be held on their regular schedule.
