A vain Emperor who cares about nothing except wearing and displaying clothes hires two swindlers who promise him the finest, best suit of clothes from a fabric invisible to anyone who is unfit for his position or "hopelessly stupid". The Emperor's ministers cannot see the clothing themselves, but pretend that they can for fear of appearing unfit for their positions and the Emperor does the same. Finally the swindlers report that the suit is finished, they mime dressing him and the Emperor marches in procession before his subjects. The townsfolk play along with the pretense, not wanting to appear unfit for their positions or stupid. Then a child in the crowd, too young to understand the desirability of keeping up the pretense, blurts out that the Emperor is wearing nothing at all and the cry is taken up by others. The Emperor cringes, suspecting the assertion is true, but continues the procession.

Walter you may not want to know...will just pee you off more..... but here goes...
1 Habat left YSU but they paid him and his health care for almost a year after he left..2 chapman moved on too I believe
Ms Domhoff received her job back But then they Spent several hundred thousand dollars to try and ruin Mr maldonado and his family.. (for the record he was acquitted of any crimes) A arbitrator ruled in his favor too ordering the university to return him to his employment effective July 1 2014.. Saying all the administrations witnesses lacked credibility.....
Still use a 165.00 per hr lawyer
Audit?? or transparency.. No thanks they passed on that one too...
As for the other items Lets just say very little change took place. Still using the same management negotiating team that was the root of the 2005 problems

Here is a perfect example
2. Do not include lawyers on the negotiatingteams. The Panel believes the campuscontains the necessary interest and talent to successfullynegotiate labor agreements. The cost ofretaining outside counsel has alsobecome a burden for the University. The use of externalcounsel as chief negotiator in oneset of negotiations and not the other was interpreted as anothermanifestation of the administration’s lack of respectfor classified employees.3. Open the University’s economic circumstances to scrutiny from all parties wellbefore negotiations commence.Greater transparency of financial information and, hopefully,agreement on what it means, needs to be reached before contractproposals are prepared.

YOUNGSTOWN STATE UNIVERSITYREPORT OF THE LABOR-MANAGEMENT REVIEW PANELThe Youngstown State University community was deeply shaken by separate strikeactions voted by classified employees and byfaculty members in August 2005. Although thesestrikes were settled intime so that fall semester classes were able to begin as scheduled onAugust 29, 2005, it was apparent to all parties thatthe unsuccessful contract negotiations thatpreceded these strikes reflectedprofound and longstanding issuesin labor-management relationson the campus. The aftermath of the strikedemonstrated a palpably adverse impact on employeemorale and deep-seated resentments that continue to exist amongst university employees.
Read the report pretty clear
