[Update: A quick story credited to the AP also ran in the Chicago Tribune.]
A quick link to the Southern's story on the strike authorization vote. The story implies (apparently following Chancellor Cheng's lead) that faculty weren't willing to meet with the administration over the summer. This is false. From what I've heard, the administration team vetoed more summer dates than the FA team did. But Randy Hughes makes the essential point: there have been enough meetings, just not enough genuine give & take.
By the way, anyone wondering if the Southern is going to freeload on our outside marketing firm and switch it's brand from "the Southern" to "the SI"?
