In the craziness of the last couple of weeks, we haven’t had time to update you on the Nursing Chair search situation.
A few weeks ago Tera and I met with Dr. Drumm and reminded him that the College could not advertise for/hire a Nursing Chair, as that was an elected position. Dr.Drumm assured us that they would never do that.
Shortly thereafter, we discovered that the ad for a nursing chair had been placed. We then began the grievance process. When the Coronavirus situation hit, we offered to put our grievance in abeyance for a month, which was accepted. We think we are close to a resolution, but only time will tell.
Meanwhile, the ad is not valid, and if anyone is hired based on it, we will grieve that hiring as well.
Please pass along to your constituents.
We will keep you posted.
