Disaster is Averted.
Last night the VC issued the signed letter promising the remainder of our book and research allowance that the union had requested. In return the strike has been called off and we resumed teaching this morning. Since the only outstanding union demand for ending the strike was a formal letter with a time table promising to pay the remaining $800 of our book and research allowance this is a union victory. But, I would have enjoyed my weekend more if I didn't have to worry about a possible closure of the university today. Needless, to say I am greatly relieved. For those readers in the US have a Happy Labor Day. It certainly is for me.
