So, after a nice day today, I found out that the college Board of Trustees has declared an impasse. We've been in mediation for a few weeks, and the BoT just yesterday sent out a general message to students that they would continue negotiating. Tonight they held a special Board meeting and declared an impasse.
This means that we have to either accept their last offer or strike. Or, alternatively, they can lock us out.
I am so angry, and I have no place to express it. Emma already feels anxious about talk of a strike. Wonderful holiday news.
