Morrill Hall Gang to P&A: We own you... Time to wake up folks?

THEY CAME FIRST for the AFSCME members,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't AFSCME.

THEN THEY CAME for the undergrads,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't an undergrad.

THEN THEY CAME for the P&A staff,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't P&A.

THEN THEY CAME for the graduate students,
and I didn't speak up because I was a faculty member.

THEN THEY CAME for me
and by that time no one was left to speak up.

The latest executive fiat from the Morrill Hall Gang:

Proposed for 30-day review (dates not specified):

"The University reserves the right to modify the appointment terms of Academic Professional and Academic Administrative (P&A) employees throughout the University system in order to address financial stringency.

Specifically, the University may:

1) reduce P&A salaries or percentages of appointment during the term of an employee's appointment;

2) impose unpaid furloughs or other mandatory unpaid absences;

3) postpone compensation; or

4) take other actions as determined by the University in its sole discretion.

All P&A appointments are made subject to this right, effective June 1, 2010.

..."

Shared governance? Shared sacrifices? It sure doesn't look like it from this latest action by the Gang.
