Nuts & Bolts: parking survey, outsourcing of FMLA, take action to stop FMLA outsourcing, semester parking passes and NEA student loan refinancing


Dear Members,

As I write this out of the corner of my eye I see them.  The pile is calling for me to open them.  I move the pile across the room but still they demand attention. They are of course a pile of blue books.  I wondered when we began using blue books.  A google search indicates Butler University first used them in the 1920s.  Butler’s school colors are blue and white.

Thank you for attending our end of semester gatherings!
