1. It seems the Board recognizes that when benefit reductions
are the result of policy changes, the policy needs to be grandfathered.

school policies need to be on file in the Mitaka Labor Office.
4. It seems they recognize that contracts and policies need

April 21, 2005 FASST Meeting - Minutes
FSC asked if all policies will be "grandfathered" for current faculty and staff.

April 27, 2005: Our 10th arbitration meeting. We
have come to an agreement. We thank you for your support. Unfortunately, any agreement
with the Board must be done in confidentiality (their requirement), rather than the open and transparent manner in which we
would like this matter to be discussed. See letter of Agreement on sidebar.
