Other FSU Committees

The FSU has a wide array of committees that are working diligently on behalf of its members to enhance work conditions, uphold rights guaranteed by the collective bargaining agreement, and address other matters of concern to our members. Some of these are standing committees mandated by the collective bargaining agreement, FSU bylaws, or FSU policies. Others are ad hoc committees tasked with addressing specific, time determined matters. A list of some of the most relevant committees are below (please contact us if you would like a full list of FSU committees past and present). If you have a particular interest in any of the committees’ work and/or are interested in serving as a member please let us know. Let us know as well if you would like the FSU to address other matters not covered by the committees listed below. This is your union and we welcome your feedback and involvement:
