Morteza Daneshdoost, lead negotiator for the FA, updates The Southern Illinoisan on the current situation at SIUC.
- There will be no pickets on campus on Saturday, November 5, out of respect for the prospective student Open House.
- A meeting for all faculty will be held on Sunday, November 6, at the Carbondale Civic Center. All faculty, not only members of the FA, are encouraged to attend.
- A very rough estimate of the number of students affected by the strike is 7,000. Some students have been counted multiple times in this estimate, so the true number, while quite substantial, is undoubtedly somewhat lower.
