Furlough Wages Repaid

Another legacy of the Rita Cheng era, SIUC's board voted yesterday not to appeal the ruling that the university bargained in bad faith with employees and will repay the $1.7 million it owes employees that it furloughed in violation of the contract with them.

Probably a good move, given the amount mounting an appeal would cost that this makes 0-2 in decisions against the university,this time by an unanimous decision from the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Board. No need to spend more money and make it 0-3.
