“Shared governance” is nothing but a favor the administration extends to faculty—when they want. They can include us or ignore us depending on how they feel, so naturally on issues such as salary, furloughs, pensions, and executive compensation they ignore us. A union would ensure that we have a seat at the table for every discussion, and shared governance would be guaranteed by contract.
