UNDATED (KMHL) – More than 250 professors at the state’s 30 community colleges are seeking $1.6 million in back pay under a settlement reached between their union and the Minnesota State System earlier this year.

The Minnesota State College Faculty union says since 2010 the system has not properly paid members who oversaw independent studies, science labs, internships or chairing departments.

Professors are seeking $6200 on average – the system will review the claims in the coming weeks to determine whether it disputes any of them.
