Rally to support EMUFT Lecturers set for Monday in front of Eastern Michigan University..

There will be an EMUFT lecturers rally on Monday, May 15 from 4-5 pm. The rally will take place in front of Welch Hall on the Eastern Michigan campus on the "Cross Street side." There also be a social event from 5- 6 pm.

According to a message sent out by President of EMU-AAUP Judith Kullberg, "The administration is continuing to propose in the current EMUFT contract negotiations that new-part-time lecturers will take a 25% pay cut. This would mean that new lecturers hired to teach in the fall of 2017 would be paid only $900 per credit hour." This according to Kullberg.

The goal of the rally is to send a message to the administration that faculty is demanding a higher wage for lecturers.
