Meeting on Madeloni’s Job Status Called Off

The Executive Committee of the Massachusetts Teachers Association postponed its special meeting to discuss the post-employment settlement between union president Barbara Madeloni and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

The meeting was supposed to take place this evening, but was called off after Madeloni supporters announced plans to pack the meeting’s venue – Ken’s Steakhouse in Framingham.

Questions arose about Madeloni’s employment status after a Boston Globe story revealed she had arranged a two-year renewal of unpaid leave after UMass Amherst dismissed her as an adjunct professor.
