legents, administration awaiting
court union reheraring decision
By Ron Ruggles
The NU Board of Regents and NU administration are
awaiting the State Court of Industrial Relations de
cision for a rehearing of an earlier decision which set up
separate UNL faculty bargaining units.
Presiding Judge Benjamin Wall said the decision on the
appeal could be reached as early as a week to a month
William Erskine, executive . vice president for
administration, said the state courts decision called for
UNL elections on Feb. 16, when UNL faculty members,
excluding those in the Law and Dental Colleges, will
vote on which bargaining unit they want to represent
The Law and Dental Colleges faculty members will be
deciding if they want to be represented by a set faculty
member unit, while the rest of the UNL faculty members
will decide if they want the American Association of Uni
versity Professors (AAUP) to represent them in collective
Erskine said the regents disagree with having separate
collective bargaining units at UNL, the University of
Nebraska at Omaha, the University of Nebraska Medical
Center and in the Law and Dental Colleges.
The State Court of Industrial Relations decision could
mean the NU System would have to deal with at least five
bargaining units, he said.
Ned Hedges, assistant vice-chancellor for academic
affairs, now is responsible for providing information to
the university about the election and collective bargaining
in general, Erskine said.
In a Wednesday letter to UNLs academic and admin
istrative staff, Interim Chancellor Adam Breckenridge
stated that Hedges position "is to be neutral, fair, infor
mative and prompt in response. -
Breckenridge added that "The materials he (Hedges)
will be distributing will provide relevant and factual
information about faculty organizations and collective
bargaining (to the university community).
Erskine said what he called several unbiased speakers
will visit UNL before the election to provide faculty
members with information on collective bargaining and
units involved in the bargaining.

ASUN kills CSL reinstatement move
A resolution reinstating the six ASUN appointees to
the Council on Student Life (CSL) recalled by ASUN last
November was rejected by the ASUN Senate Wednesday
night by a vote of two for, 20 against and two abstaining.
Senator Frank Thompson, who introduced the reso
lution, said he talked to three of tic replaced CSL mem
bers. He said they agreed with changes proposed by ASUN
in CSL's rules of procedures and methods of giving recom
mendations to the chancellor.
Thompson said he and ASUN First Vice President Paul
Morrison met Tuesday night with recalled CSL members
Chip Lowe, Carolyn Grice and Judith Anne Sadler to dis
cuss changes proposed by ASUN for CSL.
Lowe and Dennis Snyder have petitioned Student
Court to have the six CSL members reinstated.
Thompson said he didn't think the Senate would have
to go through the procedures of recalling the six and risk
being defeated in Student Court on a technicality. He said
the recalled CSL members could become alienated so that
any ASUN reforms could be slight or not done at all.
"If we're interested in changing things instead of
interested in our image, we should pass the resolution,"
He said it didn't matter whether the reforms were
introduced by old CSL members or the ASUN senators
who replaced them.
Senator Bob Simonsen said the issue should be decided
in the Student Court and the six should stay recalled until
the court has reached a decision.
Thompson said it could take a long time for the court
to reach a decision on the case. He said it was possible the
court wouldn't decide on the case until after ASUN elec
tions this spring and after a new senate had taken office.
Senator Fritz Stehlik said ASUN had lost on issue
when Ken Bader, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs,
ordered CSL to meet with the six members. He said the
only chance for ASUN to win the issue was in Student
Court where it had a "50 per cent chance of winning."
Senator Steve Goldberg said Resolution 42, (which the
Senate passed to recall the six), stated that the recalled
members could be reappointed individually. He said if
they agreed with ASUN's proposals for reform, they
should be reappointed by ASUN's appointments
Stehlik said the controversy could "get bigger and
bigger as elections get nearer" and could generate student
interest in the elections. He said the issue "was worth

Two-hour parking meters have ocen installed on 12th and 14th streets between Q and RstrecU to assure
a greater turnover of parking spaces and to discourage all-day parking, according to Dick Mickelson, city
in parking areas
Free parking, like a ten cent stamp, is hard to find
Students who have taken advantage of free parking
on 12th and 14th streets between Q and R streets in
the past will find 5 1 new parking meters waiting to be
Dick Mickelson, city traffic engineer, said the two
hour meters were installed to assure a greater turn
over df parking spaces for downtown shoppers and
students and to discourage all-day parking. Two
hour restriction signs posted previously were not
effective, he said.
The meters will be more effective because police
can more easily determine meter violations than
Eosted sign violations, he said. With posted signs,
e said, the officer has to chalk mark tires and re
turn later to see if the car still is there.
A greater turnover is encouraged because it is
illegal to put more money in a meter after time
has expired, he said. With greater turnover, he said,
students can find parkins spaces more easily.
Ho said the S St. parking lot, on the south side of
the 501 Bldg., also has been made public. He said the
two-hour meters were installed in the lot, which
previously was restricted to cars with stickers, to
provide more public parking near downtown.
There is talk of installing parking meters on R St.,
Mickelson said, but no definite plans have been made
for tills year.
Total parking meter revenue averages $200,000
annually, he said. "Each meter will generate more
money than it costs to put one in."
