Murray State Employee Union Demands an Ombuds

The union representing faculty, staff, student, and contingent workers at the public university in Murray, Kentucky, has adopted a platform with three goals: living wages and affordable healthcare; support for parents and caregivers; and respect and safety for all campus workers. Included in the specific demands, the Murray State University Chapter of the United Campus Workers of Kentucky is calling for an Ombuds. 

The platform states: 
We call on Murray State University to retain an ombudsman that can be a neutral party with issues of harassment, etc. This person can work for what is best for both parties, rather than solely in the best interest of the institution. 
Murray State has not had an Ombuds since the early 1970's. (UCW Platform.)
