The University of Windsor did not lock out its faculty Thursday morning.

The contract for more than 1,000 professors and other members expired on Monday.

The university was in a position to lock out the faculty just after midnight.

The Windsor University Faculty Association tweets that talks between the two sides will resume later Thursday morning.

"Eyelids heavy but heart ever-gallant. It's been a long day," the union tweeted around midnight

Anne Forest, the new president of the Windsor University Faculty Association told CBC Windsor the main issue is wages.

She says without an increase, it's going to be hard for the university to attract talented professors.

Forest says the faculty is concerned that the university is investing millions in renewal and buildings, which she says the faculty supports.

However, she says it's money that the faculty feels could, in part, be spent on the people who teach and research.
