Board departs negotiations after revising proposal

At 5:17 pm on Monday November 7, the SIUC administration’s bargaining team presented the Faculty Association’s negotiating team with a revised proposal on all remaining items at dispute. The administration’s team then informed the FA team that they were departing for the evening and wished to resume negotiations Tuesday morning. The FA’s bargaining team will return to bargaining with the administration team Tuesday.

The following statement may be attributed to FA spokesperson Dave Johnson.

“While we will seriously consider the board team’s revised offer, we are extremely disappointed that they have broken off negotiations this evening. Their premature departure ensures that the strike by faculty on the SIUC campus will continue at least one more day. The faculty team will work through the evening to prepare for negotiations and be ready to meet with the BOT team Tuesday morning.”
