AAUP Update: Board of Trustees Meeting


At our year end meeting in May the members of our Executive Committee spoke with those in attendance about a variety of issues. One of the issues we spoke about related to the budget process and the proposed increase in salary that we have been asked to accept as a result of the budget process. The amount we have been asked to accept on your behalf is less than that which we previously negotiated with Management. After a lengthy discussion a motion was made and passed which requires me to speak to the Board of Trustees on behalf of the full-time faculty at the next Board of Trustees meeting.

I will be speaking to the Board at their next meeting on Monday June 19th at 8:00pm. I mentioned to the over 200 faculty in attendance at the end-of-year meeting that I will be pleased to do this but that it is important that members of the full-time faculty show their support for the Chapter by coming to the meeting. The public comment period is the first item on the agenda. The Executive Committee would appreciate it if you would put it on your calendar to be there as a sign of support. If the meeting starts on time you will be out of there by 8:30pm.

On behalf of the Chapter,

Harry Z.
