Hmmm. a 0% raise is not a raise and a 1% and 2% raise is not a raise when you have to pay almost triple for health care in this new contract. This is what the faculty accepted and the administration rejected. So this poll makes no sense. It should ask whether or not the faculty should strike if the administration doesn't accept similar concessions in their own contracts. They do pull in the largest salaries on campus. Well beyond the six figure mark. But hey the administration (President, Provost, Deans, etc. most of which were faculty at one time) would rather cut current faculty and staff salaries (the faculty/staff make the university) and raise student tuition and fees (the students are why YSU even exists) and then pad their own pockets. It makes no sense. The whole institution should be facing economic issues together.
