Re: faculty meeting on Friday
I think the problem is Nils Olsen because he was insisting on a national job search. If he's not in theroom, maybe no one else would have that idea. (Of course, there's no way to know for sure.) Theproblem is that this issue is just not on the radar screen. The new dean will be the 'decider,' and I don'tthink anything is going to happen until we get someone.----- Original Message -----

Re: faculty meeting on FridayThanks for your response. I'm just so demoralized and frustrated. I'm back to feeling invisible at a time of the semester when I am working so hard. I was used to being invisible, but now it seems like people aregoing out of their way to treat us badly (although I know it's just an inevitable factor of the chaos).
I'm curious -- how would getting some faculty support result in a national job search? Has anyonerecommended lately that we do a national job search? Isn't there a way we can get some faculty supportwithout triggering a national job search?
If they did a job search without raising the salary, I'm not too worried about our competition. Anyway,didn't UB do a national job search for my position?

Re: faculty meeting on FridayHi Margaret,
I don't think we want to push this forward in a way that will result in a national job search for the newlycreated positions. I'd rather wait until we're pretty sure that the present instructors are going to be able tokeep their jobs, or at least have a decision on their applications for reappointment, before outsideapplicants are solicited. Anyway, that's what I'm worried about.
