On Monday, Aug. 27, Ferris State University filed a motion for temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction against the Ferris Faculty Association. The motion was granted by the Mecosta County Circuit Court late Monday afternoon.
FFA members are to return to work no later than Tuesday, Aug. 28 at their regularly assigned or expected daily start times.
“We are pleased that faculty will be returning to the classroom,” said David Eisler, president of Ferris State University. “Moving forward, our goal remains to reach a contract agreement that not only helps faculty but also keeps tuition affordable for the students we serve.”
Negotiations between the university and the FFA are set to continue on Wednesday, Aug. 29.
