I also googled the TAA Strike and found several articles from several Madison area newspapers. I was actually surprised to see that the first link directed me to an article by Chancellor Wiley, reflecting on the situation that happened this past Tuesday and Wednesday. It was interesting to read because it was a letter directed to the members of the TAA discussing how the University is doing everything possible, but the state has the final say and offer which the TA's should consider accepting. Chancellor Willey also urged the TAA to accept the offer the state has put on the table and remember what they are here for in the first place. I found this recent letter the most interesting because it was different from Chancellor Willey's previous statements on the University's website informing the students of what was happening. All together, I personally agree with other students that the strike could have possibly affected the students more than anyone and unfortunately the students did not have any say what so ever.
After thoroughly looking through all of the different links, I was interested to actually find links to different class web pages informing students if class was going to be held, moved or canceled during the strike. Although the TAA obviously striked to get their point across, I feel they were extremely successful in having the media cover several stories and aspects of this issue. The internet is always a helpful news source and I found it a success in finding out what was actually going on regarding this issue.
