Randy Hughes, FA President, and Morteza Daneshdoost, the FA’s bargaining chair made two announcements at the after-picketing dinner tonight:
There will be an open meeting for ALL FACULTY, whether you are a FA member or not, SUNDAY at the Carbondale Civic Center, from 5-7pm. Everyone is encouraged to come to get the most up-to-date information about bargaining and the strike.
And, even better, we have real proof that the pressure of pickets, community members calling the Board and the administration, and the strike has been successful so far: the administration just reached out to Morteza Daneshdoost to set up a bargaining session.
The pressure got the administration back to the table to bargain with the FA. Now we turn the heat up so they can get a fair settlement!
