From Senior Vice President Nancy Pringle and Provost Linda Petrosino

The union representing part-time and full-time contingent faculty members at Ithaca College has continued to publicly misrepresent that three faculty on one-year temporary appointments were fired.   This is simply not true. All three of these individuals were on one-year, non-renewable term appointments which expire on May 31, 2017. The status of their yearly appointments was clearly articulated both verbally and in writing to each of them prior to the beginning of the contract period. That misrepresentation is the foundation of an unfair labor practice charge that was filed against the college with the National Labor Relations Board on March 8.
