After many years of the American Association of University Professors- Wright State University (AAUP- WSU), a teacher’s union fighting for a better contract of pay between them and the school, they have finally prepared to strike against the steadfast school. The strike is projected to begin on Tuesday, January 22nd, one day after the beginning of the Spring semester for students; however, classes will go on nonetheless as only about one third of the staff is in the AAUP- WSU. Many BHS upperclassmen take College Credit Plus (CCP) classes at Wright State and could be affected by the strike as well, one being junior Kolbe Saylor who said, “I was worried if may affect my schedule but it looks like it will be just fine.” Wright State has had financial trouble over the past couples years putting them in an unstable position. One problem they have had was their one million dollar payment to the federal government for mishandled visa applications. An email was sent out to all Wright State parents and family members detailing the ensuing situation. Just recently, AAUP- WSU president Martin Kich voiced his opinion on Twitter telling the administrators to “come back to the negotiating table and forge a deal,” if they are worried about the impact on enrollment (via Twitter @aaupwsu).  Since the strike has not yet started, no one knows how long this crisis will take place, meanwhile, the AAUP- WSU looks towards the administration for answers.
