Bargaining Invite and Update


Dear FSU Members,

The question around expanded bargaining should be resolved in time for the next bargaining sessions on October 27th and October 29th; the system of expanded bargaining that allows 30 FSU members to attend bargaining will continue.  So please consider participating as we bargain around teaching load, a research-intensive semester for junior faculty, promotional raises, online classes, and other important topics.   Come support the process!   Bargaining will intensify this semester, in part because we expect a formal salary proposal soon and face deadlines around the state’s budget. 

Register in advance (even if you can’t attend the whole time; contact FSU or Steve Striffler for registration information).

October 27 (4-7pm)

Oct 29 (3:30-6:30pm)

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
