Hello Faculty - I'm happy to report that your negotiating team - Tracy Furutani, Don Bissonnette, Ed Ciok, Dave Eberhardt, Brian Holt, Robin Tartow and me - concluded negotiations today with a contract we feel good about presenting to you for ratification. What a great group of colleagues to work with, and I don't want to leave out Nancy Adelson and Kimberly McRae who were team members last year. I also want to thank all of you who wrote emails, made phone calls, spoke at BOT meetings, picketed, and wrote to the team with support and appreciation - your actions mattered.
Details will come your way shortly - we plan to do information sessions on each campus and conduct a vote the first week of June.
Karen Strickland, President
