s bargaining inpu
A resolution committing the ASUN Senate to seek
ways insuring direct student input in collective bargaining
. negotiations was passed Wednesday night by the Senate.
The resolution, introduced by the Senate's Ad-Hoc
Committee on Collective Bargaining, said the Senate
would seek through 'legislative, executive and judicial
branches of all levels of government, to participate in and
vote on any proposals discussed at such negotiations."
UNL faculty members will vote Feb. 16, on whether
collective bargaining should be established at UNL.
The resolution said the Senate would not tolerate any
attempt, should bargaining be established, to "limit stu
dent input in a strictly consultative role."
Tempers of senators flared over an amendment intro-'
duced by Sen. John Welsh that would have provided $93
for a half-page ad in the Daily Nebraskan to explain the
Senate's position on collective bargaining.
Welsh said the ad would take what he called an unbias
ed stance on collective bargaining and only would alert
students to possible dangers involved in collective bargain
ing. Advertisement biased
But Sen. Bob Simonsen said the resolution arid pro
posed wording of the ad were biased against collective
bargaining and did not tell the possible advantages to stu- .
dents. ' ,' '.
"If the Senate passes this, well be the biggest bunch of
monkeys on campus," Simonsen said. "Welsh has no grasp
about what it (collective bargaining) is all about."
Simonsen said that until the ad-hoc committee re
searched collective bargaining and wrote an unbiased re
solution, the Senate should not pass it.
Welsh said research done on collective bargaining was
"by no means complete," and that no student input into
collective bargaining would be "absurd and will hurt us in

Sen. John Wefso proposed an amendment that would
remove from the resolution all references to the ad but it

Simonsen said he was in favor of student input into
collective bargaining but felt that "issuing ultimatums and
false statements will get us going nowhere fast."
Welsh then withdrew his amendment to appropriate
money for the ad.
... Sen. Steve Goldberg sid faculty members vote Mon
day on whether they want to enter into collective bargain
ing with the administration. He. said that this was the
Senate's last chance to do anything before .the vote.
The vote on the resolution was 16 in favor, six opposed
and two abstaining.
In other action, the Senate voted down electoral pro
cedures for this spring's ASUN elections as proposed by
ASUN's electoral commission.
The vote came when senators disagreed with a stipula
tion in the rules that would have omitted party affiliation
of candidates to be printed on the ballot' next to their
- Rich Moderow of the electoral commission said party
affiliation was left off the ballot because it was felt that
parties haven't meant much after the elections have been
held. Therefore, he said the voters shouldn't be made to
think that party affiliation would really affect how a
candidate voted once in office. '
"Individuals shouldn't rely on parties," Moderow said.
Senators could not vote on specific aspects of the
electoral guidelines. t
Their rejection means that candidates wanting to file
for office will have to wait at least another week until the
Senate votes on amended proposals.
will list 1 3
Rep,-; Morris' Udafl and Alabama Gov. George Wallace.
By Nebraska law, Beermann chooses candidates to ap
pear on the primary ballot based upon several criteria
including whether the candidate has received federal
matching campaign funds under the new federal election
laws, Secret Service protection, national news media ex
posure and primary ballot positions in other states. Dele
gate caucus results in other states, Harris and Gallup Poll
results and registration with the Federal Election Commis
sion, also are considered, he said. '
Candidates listed not wanting their name on the ballot
must file an affidavit with the Secretary of State by March
12 disavowing intentions of running for the presidency in
any other state.
