VSEA and the AFT released a joint press statement this morning, publicly calling for the elimination of the VTSU Chancellor’s position.
The unions representing the faculty and the frontline workers, represented by the AFT and the VSEA are jointly calling on the Board of Trustees of Vermont State Colleges System to eliminate the Office of Chancellor. If that is not feasible, then to include their members on the search committee for the new chancellor as well as the Board of Trustees.
“VTSU needs to cut the massive $13 million dollars in bloated management salaries and invest more funding closer to the students by retaining faculty and increasing the pay of frontline staff.” Said Billie Neathawk, President of the VSEA VTSU Staff Federation and a 25-year employee on the VTSU Castleton Campus.
VSEA Labor Relations Director Gary Hoadley has posted his first two “Negotiation Notes” to the VSEA website, and members belonging to one of VSEA’s three Executive Branch Bargaining Units are urged to give it a read.
