ACCORDING TO University
Education Prof. Herbert Eibler, it is too
early to tell what kind of impact the
case will have on training teachers at
the University. "I think what the School
of Education will do is see how the
school board responds, because what
they do for in-seryice training may be
what we will have to do for pre-service.
A second level would be to see what the
state will do for the legal implications
in teacher training," Eibler said.
Plaintiff attorney Kaimowitz terms
the judge's decision as monumental
and says it "is as significant or will turn
out to be more significant than Brown

DISAGREEMENTS about contract
wording, hiring procedures, and the
status of book rush employees have
slowed the progress of the talks.
Meanwhile, the campus skilled
trades union had been negotiating a
new contract with the University and
hoped to reach an agreement before the
two-year pact expired July 31. Univer-
sity officials said they did not expect
any difficulties in getting a new con-
tract approved by the campus local of
the Washtenaw County Local Building
,Trades Council, which'represents cam-
pus electricians, plumbers, painters
and other similar skilled personnel.
According to University Personnel
Administrator John Forsyth in late
July, "both sides were making good
progress towards a successor
THE 2,300 maintenance and food ser-
vice workers, custodians, and nurses
aides on the Ann Arbor, Flint, and Dear-
born campuses are represented by the
American Federation of State, County,
and Municipal Employees (AFSCME).
Logal 1583, the largest campus labor
640on, negotiated a twoyear contract
with the University last spring.
Currently, 150 members of the AF-
.SCME unionsare attempting to gain
recognition as an independent union.
The Michigan Employment Relations
Commission (MERC) is considering a
petition to become a separate
bargaining unit submitted by the
University of Michigan Mechanics and
Repairmen Association. Both the
University and AFSCME have
challenged the petition and a ruling is
expected in September.
Local officials of AFSCME are
currently planning a drive to include
the 3,400 University clerical workers in
the union, according to Local 1583
president Dwight Newman.
Another campus labor group, the
Organizing Committee for Clericals
(OCC) is planning a separate attempt
to become the representative of the
campus secretarial workers, perhaps
as early as this fall.
Last November the clericals voted
down the OCC's first bid to become the
4group's collective bargaining agent.
The OCC challenged the validity of the
election, alleging unfair labor practices
by the University and MERC election
bofficials. Hearings in the case have
,been completed, and a decision is ex-
pected in August.
If either group can get the signatures
-of 30 per cent of the eligible clericals, a
-certifying election will be held.
A long-awaited decision is expected

sity and the Graduate Employees

- (TAs). After a delay with the trial tran-
scripts, attorneys for both sides
prepared briefs to submit to MERC,
which called for the case in May, 1978.
The University claims the TAs should
,be regarded solely as students while
the GEO contends TAs should be regar-
ded as employees.
Hearings in the case were held last
spring and a final decision will be made
by the MERC board after a preliminary'
ruling by an administrative law judge.

The school board initially voted to
appeal the judge's ruling, but the vote
was declared invalid by Board
President Kathleen Dannemiller. The
vote, which was held in a private
meeting, violated the state's "sun-
shine" laws. The board reversed its
decision to appeal when the vote was
held a second timeafter Dannemiller
changed her vote. Both times the
decision was decided by a 5 to 4 margin.
School board members who voted to
appeal said they felt the decision was
outside the judge's jurisdiction. Also,
since the judge had not found evidence
against the schools, and had even
praised them, administrators said they
