group to consider strike
(Continued from Page 1)
the University's position in dealing
For the past several months OTF
representatives have tried to
"maintain a low profile" - work-
ing through recognized channels
within the University Administra-
tion - but have been continually
rebuffed, claimed Sandra Silber-
stein, OTF chairwoman.
SMITH acknowledged these ef-
forts, but said however "the Uni-
versity can not bargain with the
group." To do so would violate
certain labor laws, he added.
The Vice President also down-
played the effect of the TF's
threatened strike last fall had on
the additional funds they receiv-
ed. "Everything granted at that
time was in the works before the
strike talk surfaced," Smith said.
The OTF demands under con-
sideration "might" include:
--limits on class size;
-maternity/sick leave; and
--University funded child care.
SILBERSTEIN said the "pack-
age of demands" would be design-
ed to improve the quality of edu-
cation at the University and would
reflect "what the people want -
not what the University is willing
Echoing that feeling, Ruhland
added that OTF desires changesj
that will "improve the quality of
undergraduate teaching." He also
contended that the administrators
are presently less concerned with
undergraduate programs than they1
Both OTF members agreed that
"only the threat of militant action
will compel the University to seri-
ously consider TF grievances."
They further expressed confidence
that a strike would gain wide sup-
port among the teaching fellows
and other campus groups.
THE TWO million dollars the
teaching fellows received last fall
came from funds accumulated as
the result of a massive tuition hike,
spawning charges that the Univer-
sity exploited the students to paci-

fy the OTF. Ruhland said the ad-
ministration had attempted "di-
vide and conquer tactics" to dif-
fuse OTF support among the stu-
In addition he commented the
teaching fellows do not want any
increased benefits at "the expense
of another tuition increase." The
Universityl could meet the de-
mands without a fee increase, ac-
cording to Ruhland. "The last
thing we wantdtoddo is screw the
students," he added.
Smith would not discuss the Uni-
versity's ability to financially cov-
er the OTF demands because the
budget-making process for next fall
will not begin for several months.
