In less than 24 hours, faculty at the University of Illinois Chicago could be on the picket lines, as teachers are planning a two-day walkout.

If they walk the university would be forced to cancel hundreds of classes.

The more than 1,100 union faculty members and school are at odds over a new contract.

Teacher pay is the sticking point.
