OT F: The teachers union that isn't a union

reference to the procedures neces-
sary to form a union.
OTF has' in fact sent a letter to
Fleming explaining that it is not
currently interested in pressing
for formal bargaining powers.
Fleming last night declined to
comment on his response, however,
saying that he had not yet seen it.
Although at their mass meeting
the TFs voted to recognize OTF
as their "bargaining agent," Sil-
bertstein said that the TFs are
not seeking to become a legal bar-
gaining agent" at this time "be-
cause it would not feasible."
THE PROCEDURES involved in
forming a union are not only ex-
tremely expensive and uncertain,
but so time-consuming that they
might outlast several generations
of TFs.
OTF is also laboring under an
unfavorable decision f r o m the
Michigan Employment Relations
Commission (MERC), which in
1971 quashed an earlier unioniza-
tion attempt by ruling that the

bargaining unit would have to in-
clude research assistants.
Critics of TF unionization-and
there aren't many a d v o c a t e s
around at the moment-point to
the example of unionization at the
University of Wisconsin in Madi-
Following unionization there in
1969 the number of TFs employed
dropped significantly, due mainly
to faculty members, traumatized by
the disruption of traditional col-
legial relationships who decided to
get along without TFs.
OTF'S FORTUNES with the Uni-
versity may very well hinge on its
connections with the faculty. While
it is doubtful that many faculty
would enthuse over an OTF bent
on formal unionization, they will
probably be more agreeable to an
arrangement which shelters the
TFs under faculty wings. OTF is
in fact already loosely affiliated
with the local chapter of the Amer-
ican Association of University Pro-
fessors (AAUP), an organization
which lobbied for the TFs earlier

day morning when Vaughn answ-
ered a call at a Dexter bar to in-,
vestigate a fight. He ordered two
men allegedly involved in the
fight to leave the bar and get out
of town.
ABOUT AN HOUR later he saw
the two men coming back to the
city and followed their car to a
parking lot behind a hardware
store in downtown Dexter.
He pulled up to their car, opened1
his door, and demanded to see

But the resourceful Dexter cop
pulled a small spare pistol from
his pocket, dove behind a parked
car for cover, and ordered his as-
sailants to drop their weapons.
Instead, they opened fire, trad-
ing about six shots with Vaughn
before he was able to get away to
a near-by bar where he called the
sheriff's department.
A SHERIFF'S spokesman said
last night that Holloway has a long
record of arrests-mostly for small-
time stuff like breaking and enter-
"Let's just say he was a regular
operator throughout the area," the
spokesman said.
