Miller`s message says, „Voting does not change the university`s financial outlook.“ According to the letter, the university is busy keeping the school active during a pandemic and ensuring the health and safety of its staff and students. The government is calling for a 60% increase in health premiums for the faculty of the rate unit (the current total contributions for health care would increase from $1 million to $1.6 million). On average, staff contributions to OPP plans, such as ours at Ohio public universities, are 16-17% of costs (source: State Employee Relations Board Health Insurance Report, p. 27). In our current contract, we contribute 18-23% (depending on revenues) for the gold plan; the administration proposes that we pay 18 to 42%. It asks for at least 30% of non-unionized university employees who earn at least $50,000. In a statement, the Akron chapter of the University`s American Association of Teachers said that the faculty at the university to reduce strength „will be separated from employment effective August 22 until the arbitration verdict, unless they have withdrawn or otherwise separated from the university until then.“ The current contract between the union and the university is being maintained until 31 December and negotiations for a new contract will soon be negotiated. The Akron-AAUP „will lead to its displeasure with Article 15 and the force majeure referral by the university as part of an arbitration procedure,“ he said. The chapter indicates that 184 of its 364 members voted against ratification of the agreement. The union also recently filed a complaint on behalf of its members on the reduced force list. In a press release, it was found that the „complaint alleges that the selection of these faculty members for their entry on the FIR list was based on individualized considerations“ and that it was contrary to the collective agreement in various ways, such as the university.
B, the faculty members involved did not provide any reason to select them. The complaint also states that „selections have had a different influence on older faculty members, persons with disabilities, women, people with national roots other than the United States, people of color and other minorities,“ the press release said.
