September 28, 2012

They, on the other hand, had dropped a number of their original proposals (even some we offered counters to), maintained some and offered counters to some of ours.
AFT Seattle will begin negotiations with the SCCD on Friday, February 24th. The faculty negotiations team has been chosen, and there are plenty of opportunities to support the team. See full article for details.
