Day 16 - update 30

Well, an offer is out there, and ratification is next:

All of your lobbying and petitioning for everyone to get back to the table can now be directed toward people who can actually vote to pass the ratification. Sitting in at the president's office isn't going to help the WUFA vote in favour of the contract, but perhaps sitting at their ratification meeting (location TBA) could.

Besides that, the agreement is reported to have been reached at around 11 p.m. last night.

As WUFA says:
WUFA's Negotiating Team reached a tentative agreement with the University Administration @11PM on Thursday, October 2nd. In accordance with the WUFA Constitution, the Executive is meeting @10AM on Friday Oct. 3rd, to be followed by Council @3PM to consider the terms of the proposed agreement. There will be a ratification meeting on Saturday @noon for all members of the bargaining unit at a location to be announced. The terms of the proposed agreement will be announced at that time. A ratification vote will follow. All members are encouraged to attend. There is no provision for advance polls or absentee ballots.
The language coming from WUFA president, Brian E. Brown, isn't particularly warming, though.
Asked how well the deal addresses WUFA's demands, Brown replied: "At the moment, I'd rather not comment on that."

"We'll have to wait and see what the executive has to say about it, and also council and the membership as a whole. We have to follow our constitution."

But tentative agreement or not, a rally in support of WUFA, organized by WUFA, will be held today at noon outside of Chrysler Tower.

So you know where your profs will be, now you can go visit and see if your assignments are due.
