Dear Colleagues,

Here are some activities you may be interested in:

Help UMass Lowell Adjunct Faculty

UMass Lowell adjuncts have been negotiating their second contract for 11 months, and the University argues that they should not have parity with sister campuses at UMass Boston and Amherst, both in benefits (health care and retirement) and compensation (some members make 34% less than their colleagues here.)

IMPORTANT MEETING TOMORROW, APRIL 5 AT 10 AM

Dear Colleague,

The Faculty Staff Union, Professional Staff Union, Classified Staff Union, and Graduate Employee Organization, with the support of the student body president, recently sent a letter to the Chancellor asking for an open meeting on the budget crisis that looms over the university.  The Chancellor has just announced that he will speak on the state of the university (presumably including the budget crisis) tomorrow, April 5 at 10 in the 3rd floor Campus Center ballroom. 

Save the date: Four campus NTT/Adjunct faculty meeting, April 17
