As a reminder, TODAY we will hold a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. in Sieg Hall 134 to make our final preparations for a one-day strike on Tuesday May 15 in the event that we are not able to reach agreement in bargaining today.

Although we are not optimistic that the UW Administration will make significant movement, we will ask their bargaining committee to make any final proposals to us by 5:00 p.m.  We will then collectively evaluate their proposals during our 5:30 meeting, and as necessary post the University’s proposals and our bargaining committee’s recommendations on our web page (, and hold an online straw poll from 6-8:00 p.m. Otherwise the focus of the meeting with be to discuss the plan of action for Tuesday.
