Wright State students stage sit-in in solidarity with faculty union strike

FAIRBORN — More than 30 students participated in a silent sit-in Wednesday to protest conditions at Wright State University on day 16 of the faculty union strike.

Many had tape over their mouths with the words "FIGHT 4 WRIGHT" written across the tape. Many, if not all, of the students also had signs affixed to their backs.

On those signs were written four demands. One asked the administration to allow the faculty union to strike for health care. A second asked the university’s board of trustees to resign so individuals who have educational backgrounds could take over. A third demanded reimbursing students for time missed in the classroom. The fourth called for WSU President Cheryl Shrader and the board to publicly apologize.

The student demonstration followed one earlier on campus that included striking faculty members of the WSU chapter, American Association of University Professors.
