Financial Crisis in The School of Medicine

Dear Colleague:

The attached memorandum has been sent to all members the WSU AAUP-AFT. It spells out the fiscal problems faced by the School of Medicine and  discusses the role of the Union in response to it. All members of the faculty and academic staff should know that any Administration measure taken in the School of Medicine could have implications for the rest of the University. Any questions can be directed to me at: c.j.parrish@wayne.edu; or charlesjparrish1@gmail.com.

You should be assured that the Union is studying the situation and is committed to the protection of faculty and academic staff rights as the situation moves forward. Be sure to pay attention to the section on the "Duty of Fair Representation."

In solidarity,
Charlie Parrish
