Union Bargaining

The union is completely mishandling the bargaining with the administration. They are now stuck on the utterly inane issue of the service requirement for summer teaching.

What the service requirement means in practice is that while you teach in summer, you might also advise a couple of students here and there who need to select courses for the next year. I do it all the time even though I don’t teach in summer and nobody makes me do it. We need more students in the program, so why not give some help.

Believe me, our service requirements are minimal at any time. There is nothing here to bargain over. At this pace, we’ll never get a contract.
