BROOKLYN - Classes resumed at LIU's Brooklyn campus after a nearly two-week lockout.

LIU Brooklyn administrators and faculty have agreed to mediate their issues.

Rallies calling for a fair contract started Labor Day weekend. 

Students conducted their own walkouts saying they were being cheated out of an education because substitute teachers were being brought in to replace their actual professors.

In a statement, an LIU administration spokesperson said, “The union's commitment not to strike during this academic year provides us enough runway to reach a reasonable and fair agreement, while providing our students the ability to continue their studies uninterrupted. That has always been our intention. Mediation is a positive step to that end."

News 12 was told that the Long Island University Faculty Federation contract, which expired on Aug. 31, will now be extended to May 31 to allow more time to bargain for a fair contract.
