Subject: The MUNFA strike is over!


Fellow trustees,


The MUNFA strike is over! Today, Sunday November 12, at 5:30

pm, after 13 days on the picket lines under continuous rain,

MUNFA's president and the university's president signed the back-

to-work protocol.


I will let Bill Schrank or Angela Lonardo give you details in due time

about the settlement. I will simply say that the strike was very

successful, that it was superbly organized, that picket lines were

growing stronger every day, and that our MUNFA colleagues now

have a good collective agreement with real gain in money and

working conditions.


Congratulations to our MUNFA colleagues!


In solidarity,


Denise Nevo
