on staff benefits and wages

1.  Motion presenter:  Agenda Committee

2.  Date of Faculty Senate discussion:  3/22/2010

This motion expresses a sentiment of solidarity and is not a bill of particulars.  The staff are under significant pressure regarding benefits and the wage freeze. 

4.   Motion: 

The Faculty Senate stands in solidarity with our colleagues in the EE/PAT and OS, who have suffered wage freezes and feel continual pressures on their benefits.  These circumstances have undermined a sense of well being and respect among the university community.  We urge the administration to lift the wage freeze and maintain, if not enhance, all benefits.
