AAUP Grievance regarding closure of Early Childhood Training Center (ECTC)

July 03, 2014 / Phil Lesch

In Winter 2014 the two academic professionals who had been in ECTC for many years were noticed that their unit was being closed and they were given their 180 day notice. PSU-AAUP filed a grievance citing the failure to follow Article 22- Retrenchment and included the matter in the parallel Unfair Practice Charge. The grievance was denied at Step One and on its way to Step Two was referred to settlement discussions with PSU attorneys. We've explored some settlement options but are not clear if a settlement is reachable.
