Why Is Inver Hills Banning Union Activist From Campus?

February 22, 2016

Inver Hills Community College, in Minnesota, has placed Dave Berger, a faculty member in sociology, on leave and barred him from campus. The move is raising questions, The Star Tribune reported, because Berger is the grievance representative of the faculty union and the move follows a faculty vote of no confidence in President Tim Wynes. Berger said he hasn't been told why the college placed him on leave. The college says it cannot discuss details, but that the reason has nothing to do with Berger's union activism.
