Reminder: Come to President Young’s Speech Thursday (10/18) at 2:30 p.m.

At the close of polling today, a majority of ASEs (more than 2,000) had cast votes in our straw poll about whether to accept or reject the University’s settlement proposal.

By a stunning 97% margin (1,977 votes), members voted to reject the University’s Proposal.

This overwhelming number reinforces what members expressed at last week’s membership meeting: we will not accept UW’s efforts to back out of its commitments, even when they offer a partial payment as an incentive.

Tomorrow (Thursday 10/18), don’t forget to attend President Michael Young’s campus address at 2:30 p.m. in Meany Hall.  Wear your union T-Shirt (or pick one up at the door) and help deliver the results of our straw poll.

Also continue to forward the petitions (ASEsFaculty) to spread the word that UW needs to honor its commitments.
