Bullshit.

From here.
We must be mindful of the impact of the current global financial crisis and the significant budget cuts that are being implemented at the University over the next three years. In these difficult and uncertain economic times our offer is fair, reasonable and comparable to other settlements across the Province.
What budget cuts? Driving down TA and contract faculty salaries and benefits seems to me to be the only "budget cut" on the table. What other budget cuts are being proposed, and why are we only hearing about them now?

The proposals the University has chosen to highlight are here. Which of these are supposed to be unreasonable, exactly?
