    259 votes? That’s barely above 10% of the UA constituency, no? Voting was exceedingly simple, I feel disappointed by the turn-out.

      I’m so sorry that your colleagues have disappointed you, and that you can’t do basic math.

      • Simplius Simplicissimus says:

        You are right, I should have looked up the exact number of folks in the bargaining unit. I based the 259 votes cast on 2000, because it was the rough number that stuck in my mind.

        I will go away now, because I think my hero doesn’t like me very much …

          Sorry, but to quote Julius Caesar or at least some screenwriter for HBO’s Rome series, “arithmetic has no mercy”. You will be missed.

    The letter that UoMatters links to says 250-9. That’s 259 in my math class.

    • uomatters says:

      Thanks, that’s About 25% of the members, or 16% of the bargaining unit.

    Is this the comparator data you have been looking for all this time?


    UO compensation ranks high. The absence of expensive engineering and medical profs makes UO’s overall numbers seem lower than they really are.
