MNA files
grievance
against 'U'
Nurses union says
UMHS violated its
collective bargaining
agreement
By ANDREW SCHULMAN
Daily Staff Reporter
The Michigan Nurses Asso-
ciation - a statewide union rep-
resenting University-employed
nurses - filed an unfair labor prac-
tice charge and a grievance against
the University of Michigan Health
System on June 21, allegingthe Uni-
versity violated state law and their
collective bargainingagreement.
The complaint stems from an
announcement made by UMHS in
April that stated it would alter six
nurses' schedules without negoti-
ating the changes with the union.
According to the MNA, the changes
implemented on June 25 violate
the Michigan Public Employees
Relations Act and the collective
bargaining agreement between the
University and the union.
Among the provisions, both
PERA and the contract stipulate
that hours are "mandatory subjects
of bargaining," meaning any modi-
fications to the contract's terms on
that issue must be negotiated prior
to implementation.
However, Lisa Harrison, MNA
labor relations representative,
said the University introduced the
schedule changes "unilaterally,"

union of its intentions and then

Faculty reflects on
Ford's philanthropic
efforts at the 'U'
By ANDREW SCHULMAN
Daily StaffReporter
Betty Ford, wife of the late
President Gerald R. Ford and
tireless advocate for breast can-
cer and substance abuse aware-
ness, passed away in Palm
Springs, Calif. on Friday at the
age of 93.

As news of Ford's passing
spread across campus - where
the Gerald R. Ford School of
Public Policy bears the name of
her late husband - University
officials praised her extensive
work both at the University and
beyond.
Susan Collins, dean of the
Ford School, lauded Ford as
a model for compassion and
strength and praised her ability
to empower others.
"... Speaking out in thought-
ful, balanced ways and really
making a difference on issues

that she cared about was empow-
ering to women especially, but
also to people all around the
world," Collins said. "She real-
ly was a very, very impressive
woman who was quite beloved
by all the people she met."
From being chosen to
receive an honorary Doctorate
of Laws degree from the Uni-
versity in 1976, to visiting for the
groundbreaking of Weill Hall in
November 2004, Ford had a dis-
tinguished presence on campus,
