Letter to FSU Members From The Graduate Employee Organization

10/29/2018

NOTE: The following letter was submitted to the FSU by the Graduate Employee Organization, who asked the FSU to send the letter to FSU members.

Dear UMass Boston Faculty,

We have heard from sources throughout the university that there is some confusion regarding the new Graduate Assistant contract negotiated by the Graduate Employee Organization (GEO) and UMass Boston Admin. We hope to alleviate some of this confusion in this email.

The Role of Public Higher Education and UMass Boston

The Role of Public Higher Education and UMass Boston

Edited remarks by Marlene Kim from an address given at UMB on October 4, 2018

Public higher education serves the public good: it benefits more than just the college graduate.  Because it helps the larger community, we should subsidize higher education more than we do so today. 

Your raises are finally coming and other news from the FSU

10/15/2018

Dear Colleague,

Some great news and reminders from the FSU.   

Your raises:  Even though you ratified our contract in the summer, we have not received our raises because the legislature and Governor had yet to validate and fund our contracts (and other UMass contracts).  The House Ways and Means Committee just released a supplemental budget to fund these, and we expect both Houses to pass this and for the Governor to sign.  Yes you will receive retroactive pay.
