Dear EMU Faculty:
Appendix G in our 2010-2012 EMU-AAUP faculty contract required that we negotiate with the EMU Administration a new department head evaluation form and survey instrument. We have just finished the process. Both the new survey procedures and form, along with the MOU we signed with the Administration.
The Central Michigan Faculty Association has rejected the University's "final" contract offer. Coverage and a comparison of where the sides stand is available in a November 11 article from the Saginaw News.
The "final" offer was based on a state-appointed fact finder's report, which was largely favorable to the CMU administration's position. More on the fact finder's report is available in a November 1 article from the Saginaw News.
Updates on negotiations from the CMU Faculty Association can be found on the Faculty Association Crisis Communication Center.
The EMU-AAUP chapter voted to support the California Faculty Association's strike at the November chapter meeting.
More information on the strike, which is slated for Thursday, 11/17 can be found at:Read more: EMU-AAUP Supports California Faculty Association Strike
To date, AAUP, including National AAUP, Ohio state chapters, state chapters and conferences from across the country, and our individual members, contributed over $600,000 to the We are Ohio campaign to support the right to collective bargaining for public employees in Ohio. The Michigan Conference contributed $25,000 and individual chapters within Michigan also donated, including EMU, Oakland, and Western Michigan. A Quinnipiac Poll released this morning indicates that SB 5 is likely to be defeated by Ohio voters.
Central Michigan University faculty are working without a contract after being forced back to work through a judge's order in September.
