Oakland University in suburban Detroit has canceled classes indefinitely because its professors have gone on strike.
Thursday was supposed to be the opening of the fall semester for about 18,000 students at Oakland University. But the Oakland University chapter of the American Association of University Professors authorized a strike Wednesday night.
Contract talks under way for months have failed to produce a deal. Among the issues in the negotiations are pay increases and hiring more faculty.
Oakland University first posted a notice on its Web site early Thursday saying students should report to class. But it posted a new notice later Thursday morning saying classes were canceled.
The school says other offices remain open at its campus in Rochester
