NMU faculty union holding rally today
MARQUETTE — Members of the Northern Michigan University-American Association of University Professors faculty union plan a rally for 4 p.m. today regarding faculty compensation.
The union is seeking a three-year deal that would keep faculty compensation from falling further behind other regional universities in Michigan, it said.
NMU faculty and members of other local unions will gather at the Wildcat statue in front of Jamrich Hall, march to Cohodas Hall and then back to the statue.
Union President Dwight Brady said the NMU administration’s initial offer called for a two-year contract with no pay increase to base pay over two years with a one-time 1% bonus. He said the union will not accept “essentially” frozen salaries again.
