Strike Against The Cuts

We just finished a pamphlet about the budget cuts at UNO and what we can do about them if we can all come together, and we are pretty proud of it to be honest. Check it out:

Strike Against The Cuts: A Guide to the UNO Crisis

Remember, the UNO strike is still on for Wednesday September 1st at 10 am.  See you in the quad!

    I recently ran into someone posting flyers about UNO’s strike. I wanted to drop this tad bit info. to yall. Fredrick “Rick” Barton; salary $224,064; teaches maybe one class a semestar!!!! http://english.uno.edu/faculty/barton.cfm ; http://blog.nola.com/graphics/2008/02/salary_details.html ;

    Here are two sites for you to look at. He is getting paid three times higher then anyone in the EES department and he doesn’t even have a PhD and hardly teaches classes. He mostly just writes books with UNO does not recieve any money for but we are paying him $224,000?? Don’t make since to me. Maybe you could bring this to everyones attention!

    Barton directs the Creative Writing Program, and was Provost for three years. The salary comes from having been provost. Unfortunately, like many former upper administrators, he was able to keep his higher salary upon returning to his department. At least you ought to represent the issue fairly; do you people do any research? If not, perhaps you should be paying attention in those writing classes for which you’re paying so much.

    And your spelling is lousy.

      it was info passed along from a student, it wasn’t our spelling errors. Thanks for providing more info on the issue, we are just posting what others are reporting to us about the cuts, and the truth is important. So thanks.
