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