At the VCC Board of Governors meeting last night, Karen Shortt, President of the VCCFA spoke about surprise that “her sister unions” did not speak to the issue of VCC’s tuition increases and new fees.
At the Tuition and Fees Committee on January 18, 2016 we were surprised that Karen Shortt, President of the VCCFA and VCCFA representative on the committee, spoke about her justifiable outrage at the proposed tuition increases and new fees, and then chose to not vote against the proposed tuition increases and new fees. Instead the VCCFA chose to abstain. Perhaps there was confusion as to what the vote was for? Or against?
Abstain: to choose not to do or have something
