This afternoon, AAUP Purdue passed a statement of solidarity with the faculty at Wright State, who are on their 8th day of a strike. Over 50% of our chapter members approved the following statement:
Dear Wright State colleagues,
The Purdue chapter of the American Association of University Professors sends solidarity greetings. We stand with your faculty in its strike against the University administration. We support your demands for better wages and working conditions for faculty at Wright State, and your fight for a better educational environment for your students. Your struggle emblematizes the need for faculty across the country to work together in coalition to fight for its interests.

We are sending it to our colleagues there, and to their administration.
