Chief Negotiator’s Blog #20
On October 5, 2016, your negotiating team resumed negotiations with the administrations team at 9:00 AM in the Depot Campus. Due to a sabbatical leave and a retirement, out team now consists of Gene Salorio (Management), Tom Peters (Computer Science & Engineering), Evelyn Simien (Political Science), and Suman Majumdar (Statistics).
After a brief discussion as to where certain proposals were left off from the last meeting, the administration handed us a package of articles for consideration. The package included Articles 5, 10, and 16 (which can be viewed Proposals) . We reviewed the package and discussed them in a caucus. We were not able to present a counter-proposal of the package due to time constraints. The team will be sitting down to propose a counter proposal at the November 9, 2016 meeting.
