FSU NTT Orientations

Dear Colleague,

The Faculty Staff Union will be hosting orientations for non-tenure track faculty at UMass Boston. These provide a general introduction to the work of the union and your rights under the collective bargaining agreement. Non-tenure track faculty members of the union’s Executive Committee will be there to answer your questions.

Wednesday, October 19th, 2-3:30, Campus Center, 4th floor meeting room (4201)

Thursday, October 20th, 1-2:30, University Hall, 2nd floor, Seminar room (2320)

We encourage you to obtain further information at the FSU website regarding the contract and to read the FSU primer on contract rights for NTT (including promotional eligibility and the process for allocating additional work to part-time NTT faculty).

Important Reminder about Senior Lecturer and Senior Lecturer II promotions: Lecturers must notify their department if they believe they are eligible to apply (see the criteria for eligibility in Article 21.10.5 of the contract and in the primer) by the first day of the Spring semester. YOU WILL NOT BE NOTIFIED BY THE ADMINISTRATION OR YOUR DEPARTMENT OF YOUR ELIGIBILITY, SO IF YOU THINK YOU ARE ELIGIBLE, WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO APPLY.

We look forward to seeing you on the 19th or 20th.


John Hess, Senior Lecturer II, English/American Studies, FSU Vice President
