BoT this Wed, courses reinstated, and other news

Dear Colleague,

Thanks to your help, we have good news to report on some cancelled courses getting reinstated. 

Good news!  Forty courses this summer that had been cancelled will be reinstated due to an agreement between the FSU and the Administration.  You will be hearing soon if you are teaching one of these courses. 

►Problems remain, however.  Please help us protest the cuts to courses and academic departments. 

►Please sign the petition here protesting the lack of faculty input on course cancellations this summer and the cancellations scheduled for the fall.  Please share widely.

►Share your concerns this Wednesday, April 12, Board of Trustees Meeting:

  •           9 am, Campus Center Ballroom CHelp protest these cuts.  Make your own sign to hold in the hallway before this meeting or come to the union office to make one in advance. 
  •          10 am (approximately; following campus leaders speaking at this meeting):  Rally on the 3rd floor of the Campus Center.  Share your stories on how the budget cuts affect you. 

►Problems with your working conditions on campus or interested in improving these?  Join us at 12 noon, this Friday, April 14 in the union conference room, 2nd floor, Quinn.  We will discuss how to support the bargaining team on this issue.
