Dear President Kich:
On behalf of the 35,000 members of United University Professions (UUP), the union representing academic and professional faculty of the State University of New York (SUNY), I am writing to you to express our unwavering support for AAUP-WSU in your struggle with the Wright State University administration.
UUP stands in solidarity with you, our sisters and brothers in AAUP, in your strike for a fair contract. The employment terms imposed by the WSU Board of Trustees constitute an outrageous attack on the union’s fundamental rights. We applaud your efforts to preserve, protect and defend union rights, working conditions and quality education.
We join our sister public higher education unions in calling on the WSU administration to commit to the common good of the students, community and faculty. It is time for the administration to end this dispute and negotiate in good faith.
We wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
Frederick. E. Kowal, Ph.D., President
