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.
