Professor discusses union effects,

Professors unionize to gain power,
not salary increases, according to the
president of the Wayne State University
faculty union.
"Re-establishing faculty power is the
main reason for the growth of unions.
Very few people go into collective
bargaining to get more money; the
primary impetus for unionizing is to
gain or retrieve some force on campus
for the faculty," Human Professor
Norman Kopmeyer said Thursday
durin g a visit to Ann Arbor. Kopmeyer
leads the Wayne State chapter of the
American Association of University
Professors, which has been the faculty
union there since 1972.
COMMENTING on the curent
situation between faculty and ad-
ministration at the University of
Michigan, Kopmeyer said faculty
members here may not have much say in
administrative decisions.

"With the experience you've had here
in the last few years with large amounts
of money being spent on something
without faculty appeal, such as the new
hospital, it seems as if the faculty may
not have enough voice," Kopmeyer
The Wayne professor said he hopes
the unionization petition submitted by
physic department members to
faculty governance groups will be given
"full attention," and suggested that the
Senate Assembly Committee on Univ-
ersity Affairs hold hearings on
unionization and include testimony
from faculty members currently
unionized at other colleges.
KOPMEYER predicted University
of Michigan faculty would have im-
mense difficulties in forming a union,
since at such a highly ranked institution
professors place their first loyalty with
their academic discipline, not with the
University faculty as a whole.
Although salary considerations are

not the major reason for unionization,
there will be growing conflict about the
University of Michigan's system of
awarding salary increases based on
merit, Kopmeyer said.
"With the diminuition of resources, if
the academic hotshots - as I think you
call them - are to be extravagantly
rewarded, other faculty members will
suffer," Kopmeyer said.
Wayne State decided to give all faculty
some salary increases, although con-
sideration is still given to individual
faculty merit in deciding raises. Wayne
State granted last year's 6 percent
salary increase to professors on the
basis of their departmental rank. The
departments then received 2 percent of
the salary pool to distribute as they saw
fit - either equally among professors
or disproportionately on a merit basis.
At Wayne State, Kopmeyer said, the
union and faculty governance groups
coexist comfortably, with the union

guaranteeing that decisions made by
faculty governance are enforced. A
University Council, similar to the
University's Senate Asembly still
operates at Wayne State and makes
decisions on academic matters.
Economic concerns, however, are the
responsibiltiy of the union.
"The Council continues to operate,
but under a more finite sphere," Kop-
meyer said.
Kopmeyer said Wayne State's union
strengthens the weak bargaining role
professors have under faculty gover-
nance groups.
"It is said the faculty will often sit on
both sides of the bargaining table, but a
union will never do that,' Kopmeyer
Kopmeyer said he has not noted a
problem of friction between faculty and
administration at Wayne State that is
often a biyproduct of unionization.

Profs say union threat may raise salar ies

(Continued from Page 1)
"I would be totally opposed to
unionization," said Law Professor
Doublas Kahn. "If the faculty unionized
I would reconsider my position here."
Kahn said a union would ignore
distinctions in talent among the faculty
by bargaining for faculty members as
equal units, leading to less reward for
individual work.
THE UNIVERSITY'S merit-based
salary system grants increases based
on excellence in teaching and research.
It enables the University to attract and
keep important and promising
scholars-the so-called academic hot-
shots-by granting them higher salary
Unionization of the faculty would tend
to level faculty salaries. .
A perceived lack of faculty in-

volvement in University decisions is
another reason for a union, said
Engineering Humanities Professor
Robert Weeks. Weeks, local chapter
president of the American Association
of University Professors, said
professors are forced to unionize when
they feel they have no influence in im-
portant University decisions.
HE DESCRIBED current faculty
relations with the University ad-
ministration as fragile.
"I don't feel they faculty role in the
determination of University economic
policies is given the credence it should
be given," Weeks said, describing
current faculty governance on a
University-wide basis as "virtually
nonexistent; advisory at best."
Weeks said the future of faculty
unionization largely depends on how

faculty opinions about budget cuts are
considered by the University ad-
"IF FACULTY views are weighted
and given appropriate consideration,
despite the miserable economic
situation we're in we will continue to
have a working relationship with the
administration that doesn't necessarily
call for unionization," Weeks said.
He said faculty involvement in
making University policy might be
strengthened, through the creation of
additional faculty governance commit-
"The administration shouldn't throw
out a hasty plan for more faculty in-
volvement as a stop-gap to collective
bargaining though," Weeks warned.
believed unionization would diminish,

rather than enhance, faculty influence.
University Economics Professor
Harvey Brazer said *he sees
unionization as setting the faculty
against the administration, ruining a
relationship he currently describes as
"very open."
Daniel Fader, a professor of English,
said he prefers a positive relationship
with the University administration over
a higher salary.
"A union passes out of control of the
people in the union to those who know a
lot about getting raises and not about
faculty conditions," Fader said.
The official administration position
on a possible faculty union is neutral,
said Charles Allmand, assistant to the
vice president for academic affairs.
Administration officials, however, have
reportedly been displeased about this
latest faculty union effort.

Trial for Sadat's alleged
assassins to begin today
CAIRO, Egypt- Twenty-four alleged Moslem fanatics will be tried by
military court today on murder charges in the assassination last month of
President Anwar Sadat. Conviction carries an automatic death penalty.
The procedures for the first public session of the trial include a roll call of
all the defendants, followed by a reading of the charges facing each defen-
dant and a submission of their pleas, according to a military source.
The authoritative magazine October said the procedures also include the
naming and summoning of witnesses, and possibly the presentation of the
prosecution's case.
Polish schoolchildren, teachers
declare readiness to strike
WARSAW, Poland- More than 125,000 high school and grade school
students declared a "strike alert" yesterday, prompting the Communist
Party to denounce the Solidarity union for subverting Polish youth.
The students, joined by some 12,000 teachers in Lublin near the Soviet bor-
der, declared their readiness to boycott classes and join other students who
went on strike Thursday at two of the city's 60 high schools.
They were seeking the expulsion of a local school's superintendent.
Spokesmen for Solidarity, which represents the teachers in the region,
said 42 grade schools had joined the strike alert.
China celebrates sports victory
PEKING- Sports mania has hit China, unleashing a brand of spontaneous
celebrating not seen in this highly regimented society since the end of the
chaotic Cultural Revolution was glorified in mass demonstrations.
China's leaders are heralding the women volleyball players who brought
the world cup home after unseating Japan's champions this week as
patriotic heroes. But mixed with the exuberance over this new wave of
nationalism is a concern the fervor is getting out of hand, foreign political
observers say.
Like zealous Super Bowl or World Series fans in the United States, sports
fans this week poured into the streets and Tienamen Square to jubilan-
tly-and sometimes rowdily-honor their victoriuos soccer and volleyball
The wildest celebrating was Sunday night, when cheering crowds
estimated at up to 100,000 streamed into the vast central square, waving tor-
ches, swinging from lampposts and lighting firecrackers to mark the women
volleyball players' defeat of the U.S. team that advanced China in the eight-
nation world cup tournament in Japan.
Business, labor spurn call for
strike in Northern Ireland
BELFAST, Northern Ireland- Labor, business and political leaders
urged Protestants yesterday to reject the Rev. Ian Paisley's call for a
general strike to protest Britain's inability to smash the mainly Catholic
Irish Republican Army.
But the firebrand minister and member of Parliament told reporters,
"I'm encouraged by the vast amount of support coming in for the stoppage.
Monday will be just the start of the protest. We can put large numbers of
people on the streets."
Paisley's main industrial support so far comes from 400 electricity
workers at the Ballylumford power station north of Belfast, largest of the
province's four power plants. Officials said, however, that a walkout would
have little impact.
eOn Thursday, major Protestant paramilitary organizations, led by the
Ulster Defense Association, declared they would not support the stoppage.
And yesterday, the Ulster Workers Council-an alliance of labor unions and
paramilitary groups-announced its opposition.

AATA to offer all-night dial-a-ride service

(Continued from Page1)'
PIRGIM director Rick Levick said
the UMTA decision to fund the project
was "long overdue" and a "major ac-
complishment" for PIRGIM.
PIRGIM's next step, he said, is to
"make sure that people know about the
service" through posters, flyers, and
letters encouraging announcement of
the service in sororities and dor-
City Council Representative Lowell\

Peterson said he was pleased with the
approval of the funding for the project,
but cautioned that continuation of the
program past the year of federal fun-
ding would depend upon the program's
success in that first year.
"WE'VE GOT to make it work for
that one year," Peterson said, adding
that there is a "good chance" the city
could pitch in funds for continuation of
the system "if it is successful."
Task force member Nancy Lutz said,

that the task force "hopes a lot of
women use it (the all-night'program."
Some PIRGIM members expressed
disappointment that the program had
not been implemented earlier. Lutz
said that the task force had pushed very
hard to implement some sort of all-
night transportation before last sum-
mer because there are more rapes
during the summer.
BUT SIMONETTA said he suspected
that the change of administration last

LONDON (AP) - Manufacturers of
"Bombshell" - a children's game in
which a bomb-disposal squad is blown
up - took the toy off the market yester-
day after receiving a wave of protests,
including one from Prince Charles,
whose great-uncle was killed by an IRA
The heir to the British throne said the
game was in "dreadfully bad taste."
THE P14OTEST began with the
family of an explosives expert killed by
an IRA bomb and reached Parliament
The manufacturer, Waddingtons
House of Games Ltd. of Leeds, first an-
nounced it had no plans to withdraw the
game - but then reversed itself as the
protest grew and major department
stores began pulling it from the shelves.
"Bombshell" went on the market six
months ago backed by a television ad-
vertising campagin, selling for up to $13
and billed as "explosively funny for
those aged 6 and upwards."
NO FIGURES were available from
the company on how well it sold, but one
department store, Selfridges, said the
store bought six as a trial and sold all of
them. The store was among those that
decided to stop selling the game before
Waddingtons stopped production.
Players are instructed help "four
brave but bungling soldiers" -Maj.
Disaster, Sgt. Jimmy Jitters, Private
Tommy Twitters, and Piper Willy Fun-
ble - defuse an unexploded bomb.
Along the way, the soldiers get stick-
on bandages from head to foot. Four in-
juries and the player is out. The winner
is the player with the surviving soldier.
In Northern Ireland, where 17 bomb
disposal experts have been killed since
1971, a spokesman for Austins, a Lon-
donerry department store, said "Thank-
