Local 243 leaders are working to resolve dispute about Faculty Assignment Order

March 20, 2013

A message from Local 243 President Mario Dusio

There is a difference in opinion between Local 243 and Madison Area Technical College about how Faculty Assignment Order should be interpreted now that the part-time faculty union does not have a collective bargaining agreement defining “probationary” and “non-probationary” status.

The College has made it clear that the budget gap must be closed to prevent layoffs. Since both the College and Local 243 understand layoffs may not solve the problem of uncovered classes and will harm the College and its workers, we are continuing to try to resolve this matter. Local 243 leaders met once and will meet again with our legal counsel concerning this (and other) matters.
