We, the undersigned, strongly object to Wayne State University Administration pushing through drastic increases in employee pay-as-you go parking rates from $3.50 per entry to $6.00 per entry. This affects a number of faculty and academic staff, as well as graduate employees who do not opt to pay via the automatic 5-day-a-week payroll deduction plan.
Furthermore, we object to these increases being implemented without proper consultation with faculty and academic staff representatives in the Union and in the Academic Senate.
We strongly urge WSU Administration to bargain the matter of fair parking rates with the AAUP-AFT during current contract negotiations and provide all relevant information used to justify this increase.
Negotiate Fair Parking with the AAUP-AFT Local 6075
We the undersigned insist that the Wayne State University administration negotiate fair parking rates with the AAUP-AFT Local 6075.
Furthermore, we strongly object to the Administration pushing through drastic increases in employee parking rates without proper consultation with employee representatives in the Union and the Academic Senate Facilities, Support Services and Technology Committee.
This increase in parking fees affects the terms of employment of members of the AAUP-AFT, as well as other employee Unions, and we insist that any increases be negotiated in the current round of bargaining and all relevant information regarding parking revenues be provided.
