Green River College, faculty union battle over budget cuts - Associated Press

Faculty and administrators at Green River College in Auburn are squaring off over proposed budget cuts, with the faculty union and management battling over a contract for more than a year. The Seattle Times reports that President Eileen Ely wants to close three programs because of declining enrollment and a looming $5.7 million shortfall. Faculty-union officials say she is trying to close member-run programs to intimidate the union. The union has organized marches, calls for Ely's resignation, no-confidence votes and a vote in favor of a measure authorizing the union to call for a strike.
