Office transfer bidding

A message from Local 243 President Marie Dusio: Full time faculty at the Downtown campus (DTEC) should have received e-mail from me and/or Facilities regarding office reassignment, as the process started this week. If you have not, please contact me, Joe Lowndes (, or Cindy Treige-Onofrey (

Local 243 is working to facilitate faculty office reassignments at non-Truax campuses, now that the large Truax-based moves are complete, and that we are confident renovations at the Downtown campus will not occur during the coming academic year.

The MATC-Madison Facilities Services staff is identifying which Downtown Education Center (DTEC), South, Commercial Avenue, and West faculty offices are currently available for reassignment.
