Two of the school's staff leaders say the University of Kentucky would be better off using the system in place instead of forming a union to address their concerns over salaries.

Non-faculty employees ranging from food workers and custodians to high-level administrators make up the school's staff. Many are protesting a plan by President Lee Todd to give faculty members higher raises than staff over the next six years.

The Kentucky Supreme Court ruled in 1978 that U-K employees have the right to join a union, but the U-K board of trustees had the option of deciding whether it wished to recognize and bargain with a union.
