A really interesting thread \(above and below\). The horror unfolding at UA has been played out as death by a thousand cuts at lots of other state institutions: never so dramatic, but cumulatively the same effect. https://twitter.com/biblioracle/status/1146044631836188672

Tue Jul 02 13:20:13 +0000 2019

It is interesting how “trenchant” is often the right word for a thing that is really really good about a thing that is really really bad. Puts the “cutting” back in “incisive.” https://t.co/fo0efzIqWb

Thu Jul 25 15:17:54 +0000 2019

Replying to @NickjpMayo and @timeshighered

Both are “full time” and both may be “permanent,” but 9mo faculty using their summers for research aren’t being paid for it. +

Replying to @NickjpMayo and @timeshighered

Calling their workloads 40/40/20 relies on their volunteer contribution of unpaid time. +

The situation is far, far worse for adjuncts and other temporary faculty, but I don’t want this distinction among full-time/permanent faculty to be overlooked.

Replying to @LibSkrat

At my institution \(and others that I know of\), it’s quite clear: faculty on 12-month contracts are paid for 12 months. Those on 9-month contracts are not.

Thu Jul 25 15:27:18 +0000 2019

Replying to @LibSkrat

There are load of other hierarchies and disparities, absolutely — all part of the infinite divisions of institutional employment types that keep us from coming together and finding solidarity.

Thu Jul 25 15:28:33 +0000 2019

Replying to @LibSkrat

Understood, and agreed. But I’ll stand by the point I was making: if 40% of your job — and in fact the 40% on which your evaluation most depends — requires the voluntary donation of time during which you aren’t being paid, your workload isn’t really 40/40/20.
