On April 30, the WMU announced the dismissal of 240 employees of one of its unions and wage reductions of 2.5% for all unpaid employees. Here, too, I look forward to the opportunity to share this message from the negotiating unit. The challenge for the WMU-AAUP is to encourage the administration to recognize the precarious situation of these people. We are convinced that the BoT and WMU administration believe in common governance and academic freedom. The provision of the mandate route, which is assured in the 2017-2020 agreement, will enable these people to participate fully in our university, contribute and better organize it. The union is asking the administration to work with the faculty to address the reality that it is time to give our advisors the support they need to provide full support to our students. Mark said it well when he said, “We have to take care of the people who take care of our students.” Thank you very much for your time. The WMU-AAUP is a faculty voice that is not always easy to hear. I understand that it seems that we are identifying the problems consistently, but it is our duty to protect the contractual agreement signed between the BOT, the administration and our board-appointed faculty. It thus creates a safe place where we can challenge each other and ultimately have a stronger institution.
The university administration and representatives of the Western Chapter of the American Association of University Teachers obtained preliminary agreement on the contract May 17, after publication, and union members ratified the contract on May 21.
