Your night SGA fix

Wednesday, February 13, 2008

The University of Massachusetts Undergraduate Student Senate passed a resolution extending their support and gratitutde to the ten student leaders currently negotiating with the administration.

Here's the exact language:

Whereas on November 15th and 16th 2007, the students of the University of Massachusetts went on a general student strike, and;

Whereas as a result of the strike the General Student Assembly was formed; and,

Whereas, the General Assembly elected ten students, known as the Negotiating team; and,

Whereas the administration of the University felt compelled to meet with the ten negotiators; and,

Whereas the Student and Academic Affairs committee works to promote student rights through the support of actions that are for the greater good of the student body; and,

Wheras [sic] the administration has until February 29th, 2008 to submit a final proposal in response to the four demands that were issued by the students who participated in the strike; therefore,

Be It Resolved that the Undergraduate Studetn Senate of the University of Massachusetts Amherst extends their support and gratitude to the ten student leaders; and,

Be It Further Resolved the student negotiators will continue to put forth their greatest efforts to ensure that all four demands of the strike are met.

The motion passed without debate.
