Dear President Schrader,
I am writing to you in my capacity as president of the Cleveland State University chapter of the American Association of University Professors to urge you to return to bargaining and negotiate a fair contract with your faculty.
I have reviewed the contract imposed by the Wright State University Board of Trustees and it is plainly an assault on the academic freedom of the faculty and the integrity of the academic mission. The faculty have been devalued and treated unfairly and I support their strike without reservation. I certainly intend to bring this issue before the CSU AAUP chapter and other labor organizations in North East Ohio to build support for our colleagues in their just struggle.
