WVU Tech Merger in Jeopardy

A lawsuit has been filed to stop the July 1 merger between WVU Tech and West Virginia University.

Three members a group called "Take Back Tech" claim the WVU Board of Governors has failed to develop a long term plan for Tech.

They want a plan that protects the school's four degree programs and increase the salary of Tech's faculty to the same level as WVU.

The three also say alumni financial support and the nation ranking of the engineering school has dropped since WVU Tech's association with WVU began 10 years ago.

Tech's President is scheduled to meet with the public Thursday to explain the merger.
