Hoping to prevent what they contend to be outsourcing of
their jobs to the Ann Arbor Transportation Authority, Universi-
ty student bus drivers filed a petition with the Michigan
Employment Relations Commission to form their own union.
"As students we have different needs that aren't fulfilled by
the current contract, which excludes all residual employees,"
said LSA senior Cybele Blood, a student bus driver.
In order to secure an election among potential members to
consider unionization, state law requires at least one third of
potential members to show interest. Ninety percent of the stu-
dent bus drivers signed union cards. For the motion to pass
without employer consent, the MERC would have to approve
an employee election, in which the majority of employees eli-

A conference call Tuesday commenced MERC's evaluation
process and gave University representatives the opportunity to
voice their concerns over the motion to unionize.

The Michigan Court Appeals reinstat-
ed charges last week against six men
accused of inciting a riot at a May 1998
Ku Klux Klan rally held in front of Ann
Arbor City Hall. The charges had been
dismissed by Washtenaw County Cireuit
Judge Donald Shelton in 1999. Warble-
naw County Prosecutor Brian Mackie
had appealed Shelton's decision.
Sung Kim, Michael Fuqua, Adam
Lerman, Philip Vandevoorde, Johnathon
Hughes and Zachary Thomas will again
face charges for tearing apart temporary
fencing, throwing rocks at police offi-
cers and charging City Hall.
In his opinion, Shelton concluded that
the prosecutor failed to prove that "the
defendant's violent conduct caused, or
created serious risk of causing public ter-
ror and alarm," two requirements needed

Shelton concluded that creating fear
amongst police officers is different from
creating public alarm because officers
are not civilians.
"The prosecution contention that the
on-duty police were the 'public' within
the meaning of the statute is without
merit. Such a construction would con-
