OSU failed to bring a new financial proposal today. They reiterated that the Provost Council and Deans “unanimously object to the concept of a COLA.” CGE explained the concept of a COLA again and questioned how one could possibly object to the concept of not giving employees de facto yearly pay cuts. We’ve asked that we schedule no further bargaining sessions (after this Wednesday’s) until OSU is ready to respond to our financial proposal or our proposal on notice of appointment in contract language. We don’t want to waste our time, your time, or their time meeting again until there’s something new to say.
We meet this Wednesday (7/30) from 10:30-12pm to discuss changes to health care administration and the addition of CGE representatives to the OSU Child Care Task Force.
