Bargaining Update, Health Care Increases, FSU Statement

3/6/17

Dear Colleague,

The FSU has been busy.  Here’s an update:

Updates From the FSU

2/10/17

Dear Colleague,

Welcome back to campus for those of you who are returning.  For those of you who are new, welcome to UMass Boston.  This is what is going on:

  Please take the FSU bargaining survey. It was sent on Tuesday, Feb. 7th with the subject:  ‘Your input is needed for bargaining.’ Because it is being sent by a third party, you may have received a notice saying that it failed the fraud detector test.  It is legitimate!  Please take it!  A reminder notice will be sent today.
