Negotiations Resume today at 3:00 with a Federal Mediator

News just in from Randy Hughes that negotiation will resume today at 3:00pm.  The all T/TT faculty meeting is still scheduled for 5:00pm today at the Carbondale Civic Center.  Faculty, please be there if you can.

And now your your viewing pleasure:

  1. Be sure to stick around to the end of the video. The "view again" card makes for an unfortunate, but hilarious picture our resident FA-haters should enjoy. It's ok, we can laugh with you on this one!

    See this linked picture...

  2. Any update concerning the negotiations today? Has the administration seemed legitimately interested in bargaining?

  3. "Unfortunate" is right, Jonny! Thanks for pointing that out, it has been made a bit less "hilarious".

  4. Any word yet on progress? I want to get back into the classroom again, as I am sure all do.


I will review and post comments as quickly as I can. Comments that are substantive and not vicious will be posted promptly, including critical ones. "Substantive" here means that your comment needs to be more than a simple expression of approval or disapproval. "Vicious" refers to personal attacks, vile rhetoric, and anything else I end up deeming too nasty to post.
