Bargaining on Tuesday - we need you

10/9/2021

Dear FSU Members, 

Please join us on Tuesday at 3:00 pm to support the union’s demand for open and transparent bargaining:   (contact FSU or Steve Striffler for Zoom information).

The Administration is refusing to continue with expanded bargaining.  The expanded bargaining MOU signed in 2020 allows 30 of our members to join the core bargaining team in bargaining sessions (as audience members).  This system has functioned smoothly for the past year.
