Below is an *UPDATED* petition that SDS has initiated and is circulating as a means to put it to vote on the U of M’s All Campus Elections – what this would mean is that students would have the opportunity to vote on being able to take control of our University in terms of forcing administration to cut their own salaries before raising our tuition and being able to put any tuition or fee hikes to a vote in APRIL

1. I agree that there should be no tuition increases and no fee increases without student consent. I agree that any tuition and student fees increases require a vote of the student body requiring a majority (50%) of the student body to vote, and of that majority, that any increases be passed by a margin of 70% or more in favor.
2. I agree that any administrators making over $200,000 take a 5% pay cut, those making over $300,000 take a 10% pay cut and those making over $400,000 take a 15% pay cut.
3. I agree that there must be a 10% cutback in the number of administrators at the university in 2012. In addition I agree that all future cutbacks must be equally applied to administration as to all staff and faculty of the university.
By signing below I agree that these three points should each be individually brought to a referendum in the all campus elections of April of 2012 at the University of Minnesota.
