Wright State University's administration said a strike is not imminent even though the faculty union has set up the process that would allow them to strike if a contract isn't reached.
The Wright State chapter of the American Association of University Professors union recently passed an amendment to its constitution to allow a strike.
A union leader said the faculty had never needed a strike procedure, and negotiations have been stalled since March.
The union's contract expired in June and a fact finding report is scheduled for January.
The previous contract remains in effect for now
The administration said there has never been a strike at Wright State and one isn't imminent.
The union said a strike would be a last resort.
