Arbitration–2017 and 2018

After my Arbitration hearing last April, I took this selfie in my office.  On July 6th, the day Illinois passed a budget, I got word that the arbitrator found a contractual violation.  That violation has yet to be corrected, so another hearing is scheduled for this month.

Today, author and teacher Ariel Gore told her online manuscript class that we had to sketch ourselves.  In my self portrait, I dug the jell pen into that wrinkle to the right of my mouth.

Arbitration Hearing II is scheduled for the week of Martin Luther King Day.  MLK loved the humanities and was a fierce defender of public sector unions.  He would be with the UPI. Indeed, when he was assassinated, he was engaged in union organizing.
