So as you know, out Chancellor decided not to give us our backpay as a union-busting tactic. The money has been approved by the Board of Trustees and disbursed to the school, yet this one. . . individual is choosing to keep it hostage.
On Wednesday, there was a big award ceremony at our university. Union people showed up with a huge framed certificate and said they wanted to award it to the Chancellor. The poor . . . individual got all proud and climbed onstage. The union folks said that the framed paper was actually the text of the email he sent back in summer to the university community promising that we’d be getting our backpay soon. And they asked him if he was willing to comment. Obviously, he had nothing to say. It all got in the papers and on social media.
I’m very proud of my union.
