Executive Council Adopts Support position for Striking faculty at Wright State University

The faculty at Wright State University, the home AAUP chapter for National AAUP President Rudy Fichtenbaum, went on strike on January 22, 2019 after two years of protracted negotiations that stalled at impasse. 

After one week on the picket lines in the record breaking polar vortex that has gripped the Midwest like a 100 year flood, faculty members on the picket line have additionally weathered the indignation and dismissal from an administration that seems set on breaking the union instead of reaching agreement. Rudy had this to report to his AAUP friends.

On January 31, 2019 the Executive Council adopted a position of SUPPORT for the striking faculty at Wright State University.
