Circuit Judge Rules PA 379 Covers
t' Not Exempt
From State Law
University employes are public employes and are covered under
the provisions of Public Act 379 of 1965, Washtenaw County Circuit
Court Judge William Agar ruled Tuesday.
Agar denied a request for an injunction against the State Labor
Mediation Board and two unions made by the University, Central
Michigan University and Eastern Michigan University.
The unions involved in the suit were the Washtenaw County
Building and Trades Council and the American Federation of State,
County, and Municipal Employes (AFSCME).
Agar noted universities are autonomous under the state constitu-
tion, but added the constitution was "not meant to exempt the Regents
and Boards from all laws passed by the Legislature."
PA 379 authorizes public em-
S ployes to form unions and bargain
CSU To O ust collectively, but prohibits them
The University originally refused
to comply with the act because
officials said it infringed upon the
autonomy granted to the Regents
by the State Constitution.

By URBAN LEHNER
Students voted to hold a constitutional convention and to
allow non-students to continue their membership in campus
organizaions, in elections completed yesterday.
Voters also elected six at-large members of Student
Government Council: Michael Koeneke, '69BAd, E. 0
Knowles, '70, Sam Sherman, '68, Andrew Quinn, '69, Thomas
Westerdale, Grad, and Sharon Lowen, '71.
The constitutional convention is scheduled for next
semester to restructure SGC. The issue was placed on the
referendum at the request of student organizations who feel
that SGC is currently "unrepresentative."
