Dear Colleagues,

We hope your semester is going well. 

Bargaining update: We finally received a written salary offer of:

Bargaining Update


Salary:   We were offered 1% as of July 1, 2017, plus an additional 1% in merit if the state reaches its revenue target of $27 billion. 

  • Fiscal year 2019 (2018-19): To be determined. 
  • Fiscal year 2020 (2019-20): To be determined. 

The FSU is working with a coalition of unions across the UMass campuses for higher salary increases, no take-backs; an additional .5% in addition in lieu of steps; and any merit in addition to a real cost of living increase.
