Our Annual Inver Hills Retirement Celebration was a success!
Our annual Inver Hills Retirement Celebration on Friday, May 5, 2017 was quite a success.  Over 60 people attended even though we only had two retirees this year.  DeGidio's Restaurant was a fabulous venue as we congratulated our two newest retirees: 

Tom "Bo" Johnson
Lynn Mens
 
Congratulations Bo and Lynn!







SPECIAL THANKS to the Retirement Committee!

Unions United,  Stronger Together!

 


Hello Everyone!

Our 1st Annual Inver Hills Groundhog Day Festival was fantastic!  If was fabulous how our volunteer referees organized our Pub Olympics.  We really rocked Drkula's last night with a turn out of 87 people!  Not bad for our inaugural event. 

Thanks to everyone who made this a great Inver Hills United community building event!  We had staff, faculty, administrators, former employees, retired employees, and their families and friends join us last night.  We have already reserved the same space for next year.  Our 2nd Annual Inver Hills Groundhog Day Festival will be from 4-8pm on Friday, February 2, 2018. Make sure to put it on your calendar.

Our next big inclusive Inver Hills event will be our Annual Inver Hills Pre-Graduation Get Together in May of this year on Thursday, May 11, 2017 from 4pm to 6:15pm at Jake's City Grille, 1745 Beam Ave, St Paul, MN 55109 (please note that graduation this year will be at Aldrich Arena in Maplewood at 7pm).  All former, current, and retired faculty and staff will be invited to this event so put it on your calendar now! 

Attached are some Groundhog Day Festival photos.  Make sure to post your favorite photo!  #invergroundhogday

Thanks again to our entire Inver Hills community for coming together in celebration of our unity and common cause!

Hello Everyone!

You are all invited to our 1st Annual Inver Hills Groundhog Day Festival and Pub Olympics!  Please invite all current, former, and retired Inver Hills staff and faculty and their family and friends to this event.  Feel free to stop in any time during the 4pm to 8pm festival at Drkula's.  Note that you only have to participate in one activity (beyond socializing) to be eligible for the grand prize of two Minnesota Wild Tickets (game scheduled for March 7 against the St. Louis Blues).  The activities will include darts, bowling, pool, trivia, and a Groundhog Day costume contest with divisions for adults and children, door prizes, and lots of fun (see above).   All the games will be free.  Note that food and beverages will be available for purchase.

Hope to see you on Thursday, February 2, 2017!  Happy Groundhog Day!

Stand Up to Bullying 


Hello,
The faculty executive committee is sponsoring a Stand Up to Bullying campaign.  We are asking faculty to stand up, wherever you are, and stop for a minute of silence on January 20 at 11am CST as a show of support against bullying. This is in conjunction with the American Federation of Teachers National Day of Action on January 19 to address safety and security issues of our students
http://aftct.org/sites/aftct.org/files/0117_aros_actions_std_flyr_0.pdf  and the Women’s March Minnesota scheduled for January 21 https://www.womensmarchmn.com/
We will talk about this some more at the faculty meeting on Tuesday, January 17, 2017.
To sin by silence, when we should protest,
Makes cowards out of men. The human race
Has climbed on protest. Had no voice been raised
Against injustice, ignorance and lust,
The Inquisition yet would serve the law,
And guillotines decide our least disputes.
The few who dare, must speak and speak again
To right the wrongs of many.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox, 1914
The IHSCFA Executive Committee



     "Inver Hills Unions have now United!"

All three major campus unions now support the No Confidence Vote in President Tim Wynes.                                  The Minnesota State College Faculty (MSCF) with their 80 percent vote of No Confidence have now been supported by the Minnesota Association of Professional Employees (MAPE) at 71 percent and the American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) at 72 percent.  All of the unions had 60 percent or higher voter turnout.  Chancellor Steven Rosenstone has defended President Tim Wynes in the press by stating that no other unions support the No Confidence Vote. We challenge the Chancellor to rethink his very flawed argument and support of  President Tim Wynes.  We now speak with one voice.  We are Inver Hills United!
