Wright State’s faculty union says Friday that it is still willing to negotiate with the university ahead of their planned strike.
In a statement to Wright State, the union’s chief negotiator says the union would immediately negotiate the current and next contracts, through 2023.
“AAUP-WSU would be delighted to immediately negotiate the current contract (through 2020) and the next one (2020-2023). Our faculty want to teach our students and provide them the quality education they have paid for. But, in order for us to call off our strike, the parties would first have to reach an agreement on the current contract,” said Rudy Fichtenbaum, AAUP-WSU’s Chief Negotiator.
President Cheryl B. Schrader said Thursday that the employment terms the Board of Trustees implemented on January 4 are still final and that they will remain in effect until the AAUP-WSU’s next contract is negotiated and approved.
