Sign the BG Petition to stop the 100 firings!

To all members:

On January 18, 2013 the administration at Bowling Green State University announced that it was eliminating 100 full-time faculty positions, nearly 1 out of every 8 faculty positions at BGSU. The administration claims that the reductions "will come from attrition, retirements and the expiration of some one-year contracts." However the truth is that the administration has given department chairs and directors a list of faculty whose contracts expire this year and told them to identify faculty for cuts.

Below is a link for a petition calling on the BGSU administration to stop these arbitrary firings. Please sign this petition to show solidarity with our fellow faculty members at BGSU.


In solidarity,

Howard Bunsis, Chair, AAUP-CBC
Rudy Fichtenbaum, President, AAUP
