Faculty members at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale will vote September 28th on whether to go on strike.

A spokesman for the school said he hopes negotiations continue without a walkout. Negotiations began in April of last year. The contract expired on June 30th 2010.

About 700 tenured and tenure-track faculty are represented by a union called the Faculty Association.
