Important Fall Updates from the FSU

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome back to campus for those of you who are returning.  For those of you who are new, welcome to UMass Boston and the Faculty Staff Union email update. 

Our retroactive raises will be paid:  In the paychecks scheduled for October 23, the administration plans to give us our retroactive cost of living raises owed us from July 1, 2014 to May 2, 2015 and our retroactive merit pay owed from January 2015 to May 2, 2015. 

Letter from the President

FALL 13

Dear Colleagues:

Welcome to the 8th issue of Union News.  As usual we’ve got interesting stories about, for example, the proposed retirees’ health insurance changes and the non-tenure track organizing going on around Boston.

Salary Raises

I remind you that you’ll get the last negotiated raise for this contract in January 2014.   You’ll get an average of a 1.75% salary increase; 0.50% is across the board and 1.25% is merit.
