A representative of the MATC part-time teacher’s union notified me of the creation of a new blog that will provide updates of the ongoing negotiations with the college.
The heart of our argument is the disparity between the salaries of the full-time faculty and ourselves. Let me emphasize that we have no issue with the salary of full-timers, only the gap that has been created by the administration. They are effectively balancing their budget by keeping part-time wages low. We have even offered to request no wage increases until 2012 in order to get through this rough economy, but the administration is yet to budge.
Always good to see activists make use of those internet tubes, however, had I been the consultant, I would have recommended wordpress.
