We met with administration Thursday and Friday March 30/31. Not much has changed since the last membership meeting on Monday. We will meet again on April 3rd and expect to have another extension.
When classes start tomorrow the Negotiation Team encourages you to wear your buttons “Respect Faculty” to demonstrate solidarity. Since students will inquire the meaning of the button we will be reaching out to them when classes start. At the beginning of next week faculty and students will be passig out flyers, buttons and stickers on the sidewalk at 1622, 1610, 1530 and 2300 explaining how important faculty are to their education. If you would like to help members pass out this information please contact Brian Dickerson, Chairperson of the Contract Action Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org or Phil Drucker at Thub1@verison.net or Craig Dovidio at email@example.com We NEED YOUR help.
We have an extension until April 3 midnight.
The negotiating team met all day Monday March 19 and we are currently in meetings today, Tuesday March 20 until 5pm. Cheryl will update progress this evening.
Negotiations, Lay-offs, Middle States, Goldman Sachs, EDMC and AiPH Management.
Management has brought a host of proposals to the table designed to eradicate the last vestiges of individuality at AiPH, proposals that grant EDMC/Ai absolute control over issues of curriculum and education.
