This is a guest post from Dave Tompkins, a continuing lecturer in the School of Computer Science.
In July, FAUW’s status update regarding policy 76/77 revisions mentioned the possibility of mediation, and arbitration if necessary.
As an exercise, I sat down and thought about what solution I would come up with if I was an arbitrator, and I created a video that describes my solution:
My intent was to help shape the conversation around policy 76/77 and nudge negotiations forward so that mediation/arbitration won’t be necessary.
I want to be clear that I am doing this solely as an individual, and not on behalf of FAUW, the Lecturers Committee, the Faculty of Mathematics or any other group.
I am also now updating an FAQ to respond to any questions you may have.
