Out of Time? How Detailed a PEB Review Will UCLA Have on October 14?

UC-Santa Cruz's Academic Senate presented its program on the recommendations of the Post-Employment Benefits (PEB) Task Force.

I note that Shane White, chair of the UCLA Faculty Welfare Committee and past chair of UCFW, has only 10 minutes to present. Yet he is very knowledgeable about the PEB and was involved in the systemwide Senate process.
