We have just received the transcripts of the FAM hearings on whether our collective bargaining unit should be the inclusive one we want — including all who perform faculty duties, such as non-tenure-track faculty, librarians and some staff — or the exclusive unit the Miami administration prefers, which would comprise only tenure-line faculty. The hearings took place in Columbus on December 12 and 13, 2022.
Download complete transcripts of the hearing below. The two transcripts include testimony from Miami's four administrator witnesses and FAM's thirteen faculty witnesses. They are each roughly 300 pages long. We will be organizing and excerpting over the coming weeks and a summary is available here. Meantime, dig in.
THE Arguments on both sides
FAM continues to push for an inclusive collective bargaining unit for all full-time faculty at Miami. At a hearing December 12 and 13, a state-appointed judge heard testimony from Miami’s administration in support of excluding all except tenure-line faculty and from FAM in support of an inclusive unit. A summary is below, and you can read our coverage on Twitter @famiamioh.
