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.

Update From the FSU

Dear Colleague,

We hope you had a great break!  The FSU has been busy.  Here are a few updates:

NTT Contract Conversion Update

3/22/16

Implementation Date

The Administration has agreed to acknowledge all promotions from the previous contract through the start of Spring 15. That means that any promotions or status changes (i.e. eligible for Lecturer I, Lecturer II, or post-probationary status) that would have occurred under the 12-14 contract as of the start of Spring 15 will be recognized for purposes of conversion to the new language.

Incorrect Titles, Post-Conversion

FSU Update on Grievance Matters

3/22/16

Removal of Tenure

An arbitration hearing for a tenured faculty member who was dismissed in violation of just cause was recently held. We expect a decision soon.

Improper Denial of Tenure

A tenure track faculty member who was denied tenure recently had their grievance denied at the step ll level (i.e. at the President’s level). The issue in this case is unequal treatment upon the administration’s failure to apply consistent standards for tenure review. The FSU will be taking this to arbitration.
