ATTACHMENT to AS-2539-01/FA (.pdf)

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University (ASCSU) deplore the numerous, misleading, and provocative assertions made in a letter of April 23, 2001, and sent by Chancellor Charles Reed to CSU campus newspapers and other media sources; and be it further

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU believe that such communications as this letter violate the spirit of collegiality and inhibit the progress of the collective bargaining process as called for in AS-2506-01/FA; and be it further

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU urge the Chancellor to avoid such divisive statements in the future; and be it further

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU send copies of this resolution to the Chancellor, the Board of Trustees, and campus senates and campus newspapers.

RATIONALE: The Chancellor's letter contains carefully-selected data that may confuse or mislead its readers. Documents such as this contradict the intent of Academic Senate CSU resolutions AS-2506-00/FA, September 14-15, 2000, and AS-2530-01/FA, March 15-16, 2001, attached.
