Faculty members at Palmer College of Chiropractic were prepared to strike when their contract with the college ran out at midnight Sunday. The Quad City Times says teachers were seen removing boxes of personal items from the school Friday night.
But there’s no strike yet — union officials and college administrators have agreed to extend the negotiations to midnight April 28th. Classes at Palmer run through the middle of June. The college has advertised for replacement faculty members who, along with some administrators, would teach if a strike does take place.
