Letter to the Boston Globe from UMB Union Presidents: Real Reasons for the UMB Budget Crisis

Presidents of four of unions at UMB, including FSU President Marlene Kim, signed a letter in response to UMB claims that unionized employee raises were driving the UMB budget crisis. That letter was published in the Boston Globe (see letter here). 

Upcoming Events and Information from the FSU

Dear Colleague,

Welcome back to campus for those of you who are returning.  For those of you who are new, welcome to UMass Boston. 

  Most NTTs who were given notices of reappointment were hired back.  We do not have an exact figure, however.  Four faculty on continuing contracts were given layoff notices effective Fall 17 due to a projected lack of work.

Information from the FSU

Dear Colleagues:

More possible layoff notices to NTTs and other important information from the FSU

Dear Colleague,

1.       Unfortunately, the Administration may be sending notices of layoffs (either elimination of work or reduced time) for some NTTs with continuing appointments. We are keeping an eye on this latest development (see Article 21.9.4 for more information on layoffs).  NTTs with continuing appointments must be given a year’s notice for either of these.
