Faculty, Staff, and Students object to austerity measures, coming together for a Counter Convication.
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
The one year “anniversary” of the start of negotiations has arrived. I hate to think of how many trees we’ve used up, with our multiple drafts of proposals, counter proposals, tentative-tentative agreements and volumes of minutes. All that paper represents a lot of thinking, reflection, consideration…and in the near future, we hope, a contract worthy of ratification.

You’ve certainly seen, and hopefully are wearing, a Respect button; within the next few days we’ll have Respect signs for your doors. These buttons and signs beg the question - what does RESPECT mean to you? What does RESPECT mean in our workplace? For months now, your negotiating team has been working to translate respect into concrete contract language.
