CHAMPAIGN-URBANA -- The possibility of a strike is getting closer for a U of I union. The Service Employee's International Union approved a strike this week.

Members voted with 91% approval. The union represents more than 700 Building and Food Service Workers.

It's been negotiating with the university for about eight months. The next bargaining session is February 12.
