Union members reaching out to members of different unions--we express our deepest gratitude to the MI-AAUP for its generosity and empathy. Read this letter, and if you are a recipient of a gift card, please address your thank-yous to:
Michigan Conference AAUP American Association of University Professors 33 B E. Cross St. Ypsilanti MI 48198
The Michigan Conference American Association of University Professors represents 4000 members of the AAUP here in Michigan. The Conference finds the actions of the KVCC administration inconsistent and uncaring in the treatment of their hard working part-time faculty.
The Conference is well aware of the challenges that part-time faculty endure as they serve in insecure, unsupported positions with little job security and few protections of academic freedom. Adding to those challenges with having to make decisions regarding food or medical expenses is intolerable.
The Conference would like to assist your members as they bridge the gap to their next paycheck. Enclosed you will find 10 Meijer's gift cards in the amount of $25.00 each. Please distribute to those whom you feel are most in need.
Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. In solidarity, Michael Bailey Executive Director
