Striking Professors At General Theological Seminary Respond Positively To School's Offer

The eight General Theological Seminary professors who have been on strike over working conditions at the New York City school have tentatively agreed to return.
The so-called "GTS Eight" have responded positively to the seminary's offer of "provisional employment for the remainder of the academic year."
The professors are currently in negotiations with the board of trustees, Rev. Dr. Amy Bentley Lamborn confirmed to The Huffington Post. She declined to offer further details.
The internal power struggle at the nation's oldest Episcopal seminary caught national attention after more than two-thirds of its professors went on strike in late September. The professors cited the leadership style of the school's dean, the Very Rev. Kurt Dunkle, whom they accused of fostering a climate "fraught with conflict, fear, and anxiety." In response, the seminary board accepted the faculty members' resignations -- something the professors claim they never gave.
