Wright State University’s faculty union filed a strike notice today with the State Employment Relations Board.
A strike is likely to occur by the end of the month, said Noeleen McIlvenna, a WSU history professor and contract administration officer for the union. Union members plan to picket outside the entrances to campus, McIlvenna said.

The potential strike comes after more than a year and a half of contract talks failed Friday when the WSU board of trustees voted to implement its last, best offer on terms and conditions of employment for members of the Wright State chapter of the American Association of University Professors.
Area leaders, Raiders and members of the Wright State community have reacted to the news online. Here are some of the reactions pulled from Twitter.
