The game that the administration has been playing with the Contingent Faculty Union in the last few bargaining sessions is a classic example of what biologists call “aggressive mimicry.” In its public statements, the administration assumes the mask of an eminently reasonable, patient and level-headed bargaining partner who has only the best interests of the college at heart and is forever “surprised” and “disappointed” by the inexplicable recalcitrance of the Contingent Faculty Union. The actual face under that mask, however - which only comes out at the bargaining table -  belongs to a predatory employer who is determined to keep contingent faculty at IC trapped in our current state of perpetual fear, insecurity and poverty by gutting our modest proposals for wages and job security. What the administration offers in return are ornamental token improvements that would do little to address the existential problems at stake for contingent faculty. In effect, what they offer are band aids for flesh wounds.
