LSU profs say collective bargaining might be the answer

Buffeted by an administration that ignores the legitimate concerns of the faculty, LSU professors are now considering collective bargaining, according to this article by Advocate reporter Jordan Blum.

This is from a statement issued by a five-member committee of the Faculty Senate:

“In recent years, the voice, power and morale of the faculty have been eroded by
unilateral actions regarding curriculum, research priorities and initiatives,
and university reorganization by an increasingly imperial upper administration.”

The article quotes a committee member as saying that organizations like the Faculty Senate and American Association of University Professors just aren't firm enough in standing up to administrators in defense of faculty rights.
