UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS -- The UI and its workers are still trying to hammer out an agreement. Both sides met Tuesday morning.

SEIU leaders say, while negotiations are slow, they're seeing progress. The big stumbling blocks are pay and work shifts.

It's why food and building service workers went on a three-day strike last week. Both sides hope to reach an agreement by their next scheduled meeting a week from Wednesday.
