Unions have also been a powerful tool for collective bargaining. BY HA V A I. A II G II 0 U U S T 0 N EXECUTIVE N E US EDITOR The Utah State Board of Regents voted unanimously not to recognize the 9,40,000-member American Federation of Teachers as a bargaining representative for'full-time faculty at Salt Lake Community College, or any other institution of higher education in this state, On May 9, SLCCs Faculty Association voted to affiliate with AFT with the intent of improving salary negotiations through a collective bargaining process, which would enable one person from the union to represent all others associated with the union and resolve other such grievances on behalf of the union. State-wide implications in this matter were detected by regents when moves toward unionization were also considered by faculty members at Utah Valley State College and "The message sent by the regents and the presidents is one of mistrust and disrespect for the faculty" College of Eastern Utah. "This is not an issue that has been or should be confined to Salt Lake Community College." said Regents Chairman Charlie Johnson. "This is a public policy issue." On Friday. May 29, the 10-mcmber Board of Regents, which oversees Utah's nine public colleges and universities, cited state and federal law that does not obligate the schools to recognize a third party in bargaining talks. The new policy does not prohibit membership in unions, but it will eliminate any one representative from speaking for the whole. Higher Education Commissioner Cecelia I I. Foxley said she sees no advantage in a union representing state employees because faculty salaries are set by the Legislature. "The message sent by the regents and the presidents is one of mistrust and disrespect for the faculty," said AFT-Utah executive director Paul Henderson. "This action may be interpreted by faculty as an aggressive attack to limit the shared governance process valued by most higher educational institutions." Henderson claims that the regents, decision not to recognize AIT should nut hamper that organization's effectiveness in bargaining and for better working conditions and higher - Paul Henderson Executive Director, AFT-Utah are united," Henderson said. Henderson stressed that the Faculty Association is still affiliated with AFT and intends to fully utilize the resources available. Henderson added AFT intends to lobby at the Legislature as well. Commissioner Foxley was baffled as to why AFT wishes to meet with administrators for higher pay. "Can a union come in and bargain for more than what the state Legislature! allocates? No." said Foxley. "So what's their leverage?" SLCC faculty members said they were disappointed and surprised by the regents' swift action, and they questioned why they were not consulted before Friday's vote. Frank Budd, president of SLCC. acknowledged the faculty as being good people who are dedicated educators and commented that administration is still willing to "work collaboratively with faculty on mutual concerns, but these talks will not include the union." The regents met behind closed doors on Thursday to discuss the legalities involved in the issi ?uti' law allows public boards to meet in pvate to discuss labor relations. pay.

Some degrees may come through cooperation with other institutions and some we will offer here on our own. " Kerry Romesburg al will be the students from the Utah Valley area who wish to or cannot attend BYU or the University of Utah," said Cecelia Foxley, Commissioner of higher education in a memo sent out to the Board of Regents. Foxley wrote that the program should not affect enrollment at WSU because of the distance between the two schools and will actually make a "positive contribution to student enrollment at both institutions." There will be 1 1 required courses, nine of which will be taught by adjunct faculty serving as WSU employees. The other two required courses will be taught electronically from the WSU campus. It has been estimated that the cost of beginning the program will be $46,720 annually and will be financed by the University Center funds. The money used will go towards covering costs for additional library resources, personnel and operating expenses. The program will be offered for the most part on afternoon and evening schedules. Advising for the degree will be shared by both UVSC's English department and WSU's faculty working on campus. University of Utah officials expressed concern over proper resources being made available to the students, as well as the design of the program and faculty credentials. WSU officials responded to the concerns of the university. During the President's Forum' last semester.
