Howard Professors Call Off Strike After Reaching Tentative Agreement

HISTORIC NEGOTIATIONS: Non-tenured part-time and full-time faculty members called off their strike today after reaching a tentative agreement with Howard University. The agreement is still subject to a ratification vote by the contingent professors, who are members of SEIU Local 500. Faculty members and students have been holding protests on campus, such as this rally with Professor Cyrus Hampton addressing supporters in front of the administration building last Wednesday.
