DAYS WITHOUT A CONTRACT: 474
The Southern has another news article on on the late payments from the state and SIU’s budget problems. It really feels like the administration is trying to emphasize “we’re poor” so they can continue not to negotiate with the unions for a fair contract. They either believe that we think this is all about the money or they are trying to confuse the issue. It’s not about the money — it is about the way we do our work, saving jobs, and having access to quality health care. For us, it is about standing up for a better SIUC and ensuring fairness through a good contract.
As always, if you haven’t let these folks know how you feel, give them a call or send them an email:
