 26. The plaintiff, is a faculty member within the bargaining unit of faculty of UDC.

 27. UDC Bargaining unit facility may be evaluated for various time periods, for example, the calendar year, the academic year, or a period longer than an academic year. The evaluation for a particular time period may affect an academic year contract for the following year.

 28. Evaluations of UDC bargaining unit faculty are conducted by an evaluation Committee comprised of other faculty members in the evaluee's department. Each faculty member is responsible for submission to the Evaluation Committee of a complete and organized evaluation folder. UDC does not require any particular quantity of documents to be included in the evaluation folder. If a faculty member desires that specific activities relating to (1) scholarship and professional growth, (2) university service, and (3) professionally related community service, be considered in the evaluation procedure, the faculty member must submit verifiable evidence of the activities with the evaluation profile sheet. Each faculty member is responsible for submission of his own folder and decides what materials are to be included in the folder. It is the responsibility of the peer Evaluation Committee to consider a faculty member's folder and evaluate him.

 29. The Dean may concur or non-concur in the Evaluation Committee's evaluation. Where the Dean intends to non-concur, he first submits to the Committee a notice of intent to non-concur. The Evaluation Committee then may reevaluate the folder and resubmit it to the Dean. The Dean may concur or non-concur.

 30. The Dean also makes recommendations for step increases. The Vice President for Academic Affairs make recommendations to the UDC President. Final decisions on step increases are made by the UDC President.

 31. Dean J. Butler, of the College of Liberal and Fine Arts, has formulated criteria which he considers in deciding whether to recommend a faculty member for a step increase. For the academic year 1978-79 evaluation period, his criteria were stated in the memoranda, (1) May 31, 1979, J. Butler to the Record, "Rationale for Dean's Recommendations for Merit Increases", and (2) September 10, 1979, J. Butler to Department Chairman "Basis of Dean's Consultation with Vice-President on Merit Increases." For the fall 1979 - December 31, 1980 evaluation period, Dean Butler's criteria were stated in the memorandum, May 22, 1981, J. Butler to Chairpersons and Faculty, "Faculty Evaluations - Dean's Review and Recommendations." For the calendar year 1981 evaluation period, Dean Butler's criteria were stated in the memorandum, April 6, 1982, J. Butler to Keith, "Faculty Evaluation revisions." For the calendar year 1982 evaluation period, Dean Butler's criteria were stated in the memorandum, May 31, 1982, J. Butler to College Faculty, "promotions and Step Raises: Dean Recommendations." For the calendar year 1983 evaluation period, Dean Butler's criteria were stated in the memorandum, April 17, 1984, J. Butler to Faculties "Recommendations for 1984-85 Contracts".

 32. During academic year 1978 to 1979, plaintiff had a contract with UDC for the position of Professor, Step 8 ($ 28,265 salary).

 33. For the evaluation period academic year 1978-79, the Department Evaluation Committee gave plaintiff an evaluation score of 91.8 percent.

 34. The Evaluation Committee included Judith Baldinger, Chairperson, and Daphne Northington.

 35. Dean J. Butler did not concur in the plaintiff's evaluation for the academic year 1978-79 because there was insufficient documentation to support the rating of 25% for plaintiff's professional achievements.

 36. The Dean's criteria for recommending merit increases for that year provided that a one-step increase would be recommended for those individuals who were three percentage points above their department's norm. Plaintiff's evaluation score -- 91.8 percent -- was not 3 percentage points above her Department's norm (90 percent). Therefore Dean J. Butler did not recommend a step-increase for plaintiff for the 1979-1980 academic year. The UDC President concurred. Therefore, plaintiff was awarded a retention contract (i.e., a contract at the prior year's grade level) for academic year 1979-80 (professor, Step 8, $ 29,835). See following memoranda: (1) May 31, 1979, J. Butler to the Record, "Rationale for Dean's Recommendation for Merit Increases"; (2) "Faculty Evaluation Profile", College of Liberal and Fine Arts, for Dr. Helen Martin-Trigona, Academic year 1978-79; (3) August 9, 1979, Carter to Martin-Trigona, Letter confirming employment for 1979-80 academic year.

 37. Plaintiff did not appeal her contract for the 1979-80 academic year.

 38. Plaintiff never complained to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) that her 1979-1980 academic year contract salary was based on discrimination.

 39. During the summer of 1979, plaintiff had an independent contract with UDC to teach summer classes.

 40. Plaintiff's contract salary for teaching in the summer of 1970 was $ 2,238 for teaching one course and was based on 10 percent of her academic year salary.

 41. Plaintiff never complained to the EEOC that her salary for the 1979 summer was based on discrimination.

 42. During academic year 1979 to 1980, plaintiff had a contract with UDC for the position of Professor, step 8 ($ 29,835).

 43. For the evaluation period academic year 1979-80, there was no agreement between bargaining unit faculty and UDC concerning evaluation procedures and therefore no faculty evaluations were performed.

 44. Retention contracts were issued to all bargaining unit faculty for the 1979-80 academic year.

  45. Plaintiff was issued a retention contract for the 1980-81 academic year (professor, Step 8, $ 31,905). See following memorandum: Carter to Martin-Trigona, letter confirming employment for 1980-81 academic year.

 46. Plaintiff did not appeal her contract for the 1980-81 academic year.

 47. Plaintiff complained to the EEOC that her 1980-81 academic year contract was based on discrimination.

 48. During the summer of 1980, plaintiff had another contract with UDC to teach summer classes.

 49. Plaintiff's contract salary for teaching in the summer of 1980 was $ 2,040 for teaching two classes and was based on the part-time salary schedule. The contract was consistent with the Master Agreement.

 50. Plaintiff never complained to the EEOC that her salary for the 1980 summer was based on discrimination.

 51. During academic year 1980 to 1981, plaintiff had a contract with UDC for the position of Professor, step 8 ($ 32,905).

 52. Evaluations for the evaluation period fall, 1979, through December 31, 1980, may have affected the 1981-82 academic year contracts.

 53. Plaintiff was the Chairperson of the Evaluation Committee for the period fall 1979 through December 1980.

 54. The Evaluation Committee for that period included Judith Baldinger, Joseph Elam, Jean Ramey, and the plaintiff.

 55. The Evaluation Committee submitted the evaluations to Dean J. Butler without the required Student Assessment component.

 56. On April 19, 1981, Dean J. Butler informed the Committee that he would not concur in the evaluations because the student assessment component was omitted.

 57. The Evaluation Committee then removed plaintiff as Chairperson.

 58. The evaluation folders were returned to the Evaluation Committee, which returned the folders to faculty for resubmission.

 59. On May 4, 1981, the Evaluation Committee resubmitted the evaluation folders to Dean J. Butler; however, the folders of Dr. Helen Martin-Trigona and Joseph Elam were not resubmitted by the Evaluation Committee.

 60. Plaintiff did not resubmit to Dean J. Butler her evaluation folder (including the faculty evaluation profile sheet with the required student assessment component) after the folder had been returned to her with the Dean's Notice of Intent to Non-concur. Thus, for the evaluation period fall 1977 - December 1980, plaintiff's evaluation was not completed.

 61. Dean J. Butler did not recommend that plaintiff receive a step increase because her evaluation was never completed. As noted above, the faculty evaluation profile for plaintiff contained no student assessment component. Dean J. Butler stated his intent to non-concur in plaintiff's evaluation because the student assessment component was omitted. The Evaluation Committee never assessed the student assessment component of plaintiff's evaluation. Dean J. Butler non-concurred in plaintiff's evaluation and did not recommend plaintiff for a step increase, because the evaluation process was never completed.

 62. The Interim Vice President for Academic Affairs, Barbara Carter, recommended a one step increase for plaintiff's 1981-82 academic year contract. The UDC president decided to award plaintiff a one-step increase for the 1981-82 academic year.

 63. Plaintiff never complained to the EEOC that her contract for the 1981-82 academic year or her incomplete evaluation for the period fall, 1979, through December 31, 1980 was based on discrimination.

 64. During the summer of 1981, plaintiff had another contract with UDC to teach summer classes.

 65. Plaintiff's contract salary for teaching in the summer of 1981 was $ 1,245 for teaching one class and the contract was based on the part time salary schedule. The contract was consistent with the Master Agreement.

  66. Plaintiff never complained to the EEOC that her salary for the 1981 summer was based on discrimination.

 67. During academic year 1981 to 1982, plaintiff had a contract with UDC for the position of Professor, step 9 ($ 34,750).

 68. Evaluations for the evaluation period calendar year January 1981 through December, 1981, may affect the 1982-83 academic year contracts.

 69. The Evaluation Committee for the 1981 calendar year evaluation period consisted of Willie Faye Garrett, Chairperson, Judy Baldinger, Susan Edison, and Daphne Northington.

 70. For the evaluation period calendar year 1981, the Evaluation Committee evaluated plaintiff as unsatisfactory because she failed to submit a complete evaluation folder addressing all components.

 71. Dean J. Butler stated his intent to non-concur in the evaluation because the evaluation process had not been completed.

 72. Dean J. Butler did not recommend plaintiff for a step increase for the 1982-83 academic year because her evaluation was never completed.

 73. Plaintiff was issued a retention contract for the 1982-83 academic year (professor, step 9, $ 36,470).

 74. In 1983, Dean J. Butler and Dr. Broadus Butler, Acting Vice President for Academic Affairs, requested the Evaluation Committee to reconvene and reevaluate plaintiff for the 1981 calendar year evaluation period.

 75. The Evaluation Committee concluded that it could not reevaluate plaintiff because she refused to organize and complete her evaluation folder.

 76. The Evaluation Committee transferred plaintiff's evaluation folder to Dean J. Butler.

 77. Dean J. Butler, in turn, transferred plaintiff's evaluation folder to Dr. B. Butler, Acting Vice President for Academic Affairs. Thus, plaintiff's evaluation for the 1981 calendar year was never completed.

 78. Plaintiff never complained to the EEOC that her 1982-83 academic year contract or her incomplete evaluation for the 1981 calendar year were based on discrimination.

 79. UDC's first responsibility is not to offer summer employment to faculty but rather to offer a range of courses to serve students. Summer school is separately funded and the amount of funding available affects the summer courses offered.

 80. Until the signing of Second Master Agreement, UDC Departments were free to offer summer employment to faculty using either a percentage of annual salary or UDC's part-time salary schedule.

 81. Before the signing of the Second Master Agreement, two departments of the College of Liberal and Fine Arts chose to offer the part-time salary schedule for summer classes. Use of the part-time salary schedule allowed the Departments to expand the schedule of summer classes and offer summer teaching opportunities to a large number of faculty. The Department of Communicative and Performing Arts, plaintiff's department, offered summer classes on the part-time salary schedule.

 82. Under the Second Master Agreement, all summer teaching offers to bargaining unit faculty had to be based on a percentage of the academic year salary.

 83. In May 1982, plaintiff was offered and accepted a contract for summer teaching at the rate of $ 1,360.

 84. As a result of the signing of the Second Master Agreement, summer teaching contracts for bargaining unit faculty had to be adjusted in order to be based on a percentage of the academic year salary. Plaintiff wrote to the President that her summer teaching contract was not consistent with the contract, and that her salary should be based on a percentage of her academic year salary. UDC adjusted the summer salaries of all bargaining unit faculty (including plaintiff) such that the summer salaries were based on a percentage of academic year salary and were consistent with the Second Master Agreement.

  85. Plaintiff never complained to the EEOC that her contract for teaching 1982 summer classes was based on discrimination.

 86. During academic year 1982 to 1983, plaintiff had a contract with UDC for the position of Professor, Step 9 ($ 36,470).

 87. The Evaluation Committee for the evaluation period January, 1982 - December 1982 consisted of Willie Fay Garrett, Chairperson, Joseph Elam, Susan Edison, and Lloyd Jones.

 88. For the evaluation period calendar year January 1982-December 1982, the Evaluation Committee gave plaintiff an evaluation total score of 86.79 percent.

  89. Dean J. Butler concurred in the evaluation.

  90. Plaintiff's evaluation score was below the norm for her Department. Therefore, Dean J. Butler did not recommend plaintiff for a step increase. The UDC President concurred. Plaintiff was issued a retention contract for the 1983-84 academic year (professor, step 9, $ 39,010).

  91. Plaintiff never complained to the EEOC that her evaluation for the 1982 calendar year or her contract for the 1983-84 academic year were based on discrimination.

  92. In 1983, the speech program of the Communicative and Performing Arts Department included Dr. Cleo Gray, Ms. Maxine LeGall, Ms. Willie F. Garrett, and plaintiff. Effective March 1, 1983, administration of the speech program was transferred from the Communicative and Performing Arts Department to the Department of Communicative Sciences. The name of the Department of Communications, Sciences, was then changed to the Department of Communication Arts and Sciences.

  93. The decision to transfer the speech program was a programmatic one; that is, the decision was made to transfer administration of the speech program. The Dean did not decide that plaintiff, as an individual faculty member, should be transferred.

  94. The union grieved the transfer of administration of the speech program to the UDC president and contended that the transfer violated the Master Agreement. The UDC President responded that it was the right of management to organize the University. The union failed to take the matter to an arbitrator as provided in the Master Agreement.

  95. Plaintiff never complained to the EEOC that UDC's transfer of the administration of the speech program was based on discrimination.

  96. As noted above, administration of the speech program was transferred to the Department of Communication Sciences, UDC. Faculty comprising the speech component were directed to present themselves and report to the chairperson of the Department of Communication Sciences (Chairperson Dr. Ann J. Covington). Dr. Martin-Trigona did not report to Dr. Covington as directed.

  97. For pay period March 1, 1983 to March 15, 1983, timekeeper Elaine Bowman declined to certify plaintiff's time and attendance because the timekeeper could not verify plaintiff's fulfillment of her obligations.

  98. For pay period March 1, 1983 to March 15, 1983, Dean J. Butler signed the plaintiff's time and attendance sheet because the Dean assumed that plaintiff had probably or most likely met her responsibilities.

  99. Dean J. Butler requested that plaintiff's paycheck for the period 3/1/83-3/15/83 be withheld because there were reports that plaintiff had failed to meet several of her classes, and plaintiff still had not reported to her department chairperson, Dr. A. Covington.

  100. On April 1, 1983, the regular pay day, Dean J. Butler, based on the advice of the UDC General Counsel, requested that plaintiff's paycheck for the period 3/1/83-3/15/83 be released to plaintiff on April 1, 1983 (the first day the check was due), because the Dean had certified the time sheet. Plaintiff's pay check for the period 3/1/83 - 3/15/83 was released to plaintiff on April 1, 1983.

  101. For pay period March 16, 1983 to March 31, 1983, timekeeper Elaine Bowman again declined to certify plaintiff's time and attendance because the timekeeper could "not honestly verify the fulfillment of Dr. Helen Martin-Trigona's faculty obligation."

  102. For pay period March 16, 1983 to March 31, 1983, plaintiff's time and attendance was not certified and therefore UDC did not prepare a pay check for plaintiff for the April 15, 1983 payday.

  103. Plaintiff subsequently reported to her Department Chairperson Dr. Ann Covington. Once this occurred, plaintiff's time and attendance for pay period March 16, 1983 to March 31, 1983 was certified; a cash advance voucher was prepared; and plaintiff received the full amount of pay for that pay period.

  104. Plaintiff never complained to the EEOC that her paychecks for the periods March 1, 1983 to March 15, 1983 and March 16, 1983 to March 31, 1983 were withheld or delayed because of discrimination.

  105. On April 12, 1983, Dean J. Butler recommended to B. Butler, Vice President for Academic Affairs, that an adverse action be initiated leading to the termination of Dr. Helen Martin-Trigona under § 904.1 of the UDC Faculty Administrative Personnel Policies, 1980, namely "Removal or dismissal for unfitness to perform: . . . . gross personal or professional misconduct that would invoke widespread condemnation by the academic community in general." Dean J. Butler noted numerous instances of misconduct by the plaintiff. For example, plaintiff allegedly used abusive and foul language in dealing with the Dean and his assistants, Professor Gathings, timekeeper Elaine Bowman, and the staff of the payroll office, Ms. Lee and Janice Jordan. Plaintiff allegedly absented herself from several classes and used her son to teach the class. Following transfer of the speech program, plaintiff failed to report to her new department Chairperson Dr. Covington, as directed.

  106. Plaintiff never complained to the EEOC that Dean J. Butler had recommended that an adverse action be brought against plaintiff because of discrimination.

  107. Plaintiff did not teach summer classes in 1983 and had no contract to do so.

  108. Dean J. Butler, upon recommendation of the Council of Chairs, concluded that students were best served by teaching summer courses in English, Foreign language, Introduction to Logic, and Speech during a ten week period, and therefore summer speech classes for 1983 and subsequent years have been taught during a ten week period. Plaintiff has been offered the opportunity to teach 10 week summer classes in speech. Plaintiff has not availed herself of such opportunities.

  109. Plaintiff complained to the EEOC that the Dean's decision that speech summer classes be taught as a ten week course was based on discrimination.

  110. During academic year 1983 to 1984, plaintiff had a contract with UDC for the position of Professor, Step 9 ($ 39,010).

  111. For evaluation period January 1983 - August 1983, the Evaluation Committee gave plaintiff an evaluation total score of 39 percent. Dean J. Butler exercised his option to non-concur in the evaluation for all bargaining unit faculty in the Department of Communication Arts and Sciences (which includes plaintiff) because of irregularities in the evaluation process. For example, all bargaining unit faculty within the Department of Communication's Arts and Sciences were rated as good. The dean did not evaluate the merits of the documentation in the folder. Dean J. Butler did not recommend any bargaining unit faculty members in the Department of Communication Arts and Sciences for a step increase.

  112. Plaintiff was initially issued a faculty notice for a retention contract for the 1984-85 academic year (professor, step 9, $ 41,360). Plaintiff appealed that contract to the UDC President. UDC President Green granted plaintiff's appeal and awarded her a one step increase for the 1984-85 academic year (professor, step 10).

  113. Plaintiff did not complain to the EEOC that her evaluation for 1983, the Dean's failure to concur in that evaluation, or the Dean's failure to recommend a step increase for plaintiff for the 1984-85 academic year was based on discrimination.

  114. Plaintiff did not report for duty on August 16, 1983. Plaintiff reported for work on August 29, 1983. Plaintiff's time and attendance was not certified for those days she was absent from duty and she was not paid for those days. See following memoranda: (1) August 23, 1983, J. Butler to Covington, "Faculty Members Failure to report for Duty"; (2) August 31, 1983, Covington to J. Butler, "Unexcused absence from departmental Responsibilities - Dr. Helen Martin-Trigona"; (3) August 31, 1983, Covington to J. Butler, "Time certification for pay period ending August 31, 1983, Dr. Helen Martin-Trigona, Willie Fay Garrett".

  115. On September 19, 1983, plaintiff complained to Dr. Ewaugh Fields, Interim Coordinator for Academic Affairs, UDC Office of Academic Affairs, that she was improperly denied her pay for the period August 16, 1983 through August 31, 1983.

  116. On September 23, 1983, Dr. Ewaugh Fields responded to plaintiff's complaint. She concluded that the non-certification of time for [plaintiff] during the period August 16, 1983 through August 28, 1983, was appropriate and in full accordance with the Master Agreement and University procedures." Dr. Fields found that plaintiff was informed of her responsibilities, plaintiff was absent from work on August 16, 17, 18, 19, 22, 23, 24, 25 and 26, 1983 without authorization and plaintiff had not requested leave.

  117. Plaintiff did not complain to the EEOC that the non-certification of her time for August 16, 17, 18, 19, 22, 23, 24, 25, and 26, 1983 and lack of pay for such days was based on discrimination.

  118. On February 19, 1984 (Sunday), plaintiff informed Chairperson Dr. Covington by letter that she was leaving for Florida on February 19, 1984 and that she would be absent February 21 (Tuesday) - 23 (Thursday), 1984.

  119. Chairperson Dr. Covington informed plaintiff that her leave was unauthorized because she had not requested and obtained approval for the leave before taking the leave and that her time would not be certified for February 21, 22 and 23, 1984, when she was absent from work. Memorandum, February 28, 1984, Covington to Martin-Trigona, Unauthorized Leave.

  120. Plaintiff complained to the EEOC that her lack of pay for missing three days in February 1984 was based on discrimination.

  121. The pay of UDC faculty members is not withheld for disciplinary reasons. Pay is withheld for unauthorized leave.

  In the College of Liberal and Fine Arts, Assistance Professor W.F. Garrett had pay withheld for absence from work on August 16, 17, 18, 19, 1983. Ms. Garrett is a black female. Laura Murray, College of Liberal and Fine Arts, had pay withheld for absence from work for pay period 8/16/84 - 8/31/84. Ms. Murray is a black female.
