August 28: Demonstration for Solidarity

Thursday, August 28, at 12 noon
Seibert Administration Building


With negotiations intensifying and economic issues on the table, the board-appointed faculty will convene at 12 noon on Thursday, August 28, for a demonstration of solidarity in front of the Seibert administration building. We will make the case for honoring commitments, for treating all members of the university community with dignity and respect, and for fair compensation for our work.

All board-appointed faculty colleagues are strongly urged to attend, as are family members, retirees, and colleagues from other WMU employee groups who wish to show their solidarity. We also welcome students, alumni, and community members who value the work we do on behalf of Western Michigan University and on behalf of this community.

The time has come for us to stand up for our WMU-AAUP negotiation team and for the future of Western Michigan University.
