appropriation

By JIM HECK
The campus' largest union last
night ratified a contract with the
University for a total package in
excess of $2 million with pay;
raises as high as 53 cents per hour.
The contract, which runs until
December, 1970, gives exclusive
bargaining rights for more than
2600 University employes to Local
No. 1583 of the American Fed-
eration of State, County and
Municipal Employes, AFL-CIO.
AFSCME has been fighting for
collective bargaining rights at the
University since April 12, 1956.
The union represents "most of
the University's non-academic,l
non-secretarial personnel.
The contract gives the union
"closed shop" powers. This means
all employes under AFSCME's
jurisdiction must pay union dues
and must allow the union to rep-
resent them.
In addition the contract in-
cludes:
-A grievance procedure setting
up 64 union stewards who would
conduct union business on corn-
pany time. The grievance ma-
chinery allows for impartial arbi-p
tration as soon as 15 days after'
the grievance is mhde.
-A $100 "back-pay" compen-
sation to be given all AFSCME
employes Dec. 6:

Budget wouild cover
i only austerity needs
By LESLIE WAYNE

of
of

The University yesterday submitted to the State Bureau
the Budget a general operating fund appropriation request
$75.9 million - only $100,000 more than asked in 1967-1968.

Last year the Legislature appropriated $63.3 million,
nearly $13 million less than the University requested.
Even with an increase of $12.6 million over the 1968-69
fiscal year, the request does not provide for any major new
programs, explained Arthur Ross, vice-president for. state
relations and planning.
"All the programs listed are ur-

gent needs," he said.
The appropriation request an-
ticipates that the University will
receive $41.3 million in student
fees, indirect cost reimbursement,
and other income. Thus, the total
operating budget would be about
$13 million over the current total
budget.
The University's budget re-
quest asks for nearly twice the ac-
ceptable increase provided by
Gov. Romney's austerity guide-
lines. The guidelines, based on
current revenue projections for the
coming fiscal year, did not allow
for any new programs or pro-
jects.
A seven per cent general faculty
salary increase, $805,600 for Den-
tal School expansion, $328,000 for
operation and maintenance of new
facilities and $429,600 for F Ii n t
College enrollment increases are
permitted by the guidelines.

Critics hit
f iii i iii .
for RC
By JILL CRABTREE
Plans to finance East Quad-
rangle renovation f or the' Resi-
dential College from residence hall
revenues came under attack at an
open Regents' hearing yesterday,
but apparently no minds were
changed.
Representatives of Inter-House
Assembly and the Board of Gov-
ernors of Residence Halls spoke
to the Regents at the hearing,
which was requested by IHA Pres-
ident Jack Meyers.
Meyers maintains that such a
funding proposal will use money
needed for maintenance in other
residence halls. He has requested
that academic facilities for the
Residential College (RC) such as
classrooms and office space be
financed with non-housing funds.
Although no action was taken
at the hearing and consideration
of the issue is not on the agenda
for today's Regent's meeting, it
was the consensus of University
administrators and Regents who
replied to the objections that the
present plan is the most equitable
one possible.
Vice President and Chief Fi-
nancial Officer Wilbur K. Pier-
pont pointed out that $1 million
to be taken from the Residence
Hall Reserve Fund and the Stu-
dent Facilities Fund for partial
financing of the RC project are
pledged for one*year only, and
will be available for dormitory
maintenance purposes next year.
Several Regents stressed the
concept of the University as a
"family" committed to academic
progress and necessarily balanc-
ing the competing interests of its
members against one another in
the interests of the whole.
Prof. Frank Braun, speaking
as a member of the Board of
Governors, pointed out that a
number of academic projects in
other residence halls may also be
hurt financially by the present
plan, and said he would "deplore"
thwarting "this wave of educa-
tional enthusiasm."
Steve Schwartz, Grad, chairman
of the student advisory committee
to the Acting Vice President for
Student Affairs objected to seg-
mentation of the University for.
any reason, and stressed that the
various University units should
cooperate on finances.
