NSCC Reportedly On The Verge Of A Strike

A strike could be loom­ing at NSCC. The North­west State Com­mu­nity Col­lege Edu­ca­tion Asso­ci­a­tion, accord­ing to the Bryan Times, has autho­rized their bar­gain­ing team to deliver a 10-day strike notice to the school’s admin­is­tra­tion.

Ear­lier this week, a unan­i­mous vote to employ the strike tac­tic was reached fol­low­ing months of what the Edu­ca­tion Asso­ci­a­tion has labeled dis­trust­ful behav­ior and inabil­ity to act on the part of col­lege lead­ers.

The organization’s lead­ers have com­plained that sev­eral ter­mi­nated employ­ees’ time sheets were miss­ing key chain of com­mand admin­is­tra­tive sig­na­tures and that the admin­is­tra­tion has failed to com­ply with requests to pro­vide them the time sheets.

The strike autho­riza­tion means that the bar­gain­ing team now has the abil­ity to set a strike date if a set­tle­ment is not reached soon.

Mari Yoder, Vice Pres­i­dent for Insti­tu­tional Advance­ment at North­west State, made the fol­low­ing state­ment on Thurs­day.

“The col­lege con­tin­ues to work through the nego­ti­a­tion process in good faith and is hope­ful that the fact-finding process sched­uled for Jan. 16, 2015 will resolve the dis­pute. It is unfor­tu­nate and dis­ap­point­ing that the Asso­ci­a­tion has cho­sen to take their action prior to the con­clu­sion of the fact-finding process. The col­lege admin­is­tra­tion remains com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing high qual­ity edu­ca­tional expe­ri­ences to the stu­dents of NSCC.”
