President's Letter

Dear colleagues:

It is my pleasure to serve as your FSU President. Here is an update on some important issues.

 

Bargaining

We completed bargaining on most issues in the fall. The major elements of the new contract include:

Raises of up to 3.5% per year over three years (split between a 2.1% cost of living and 1.4% merit).

Benefits for all half-time NTTs (there is no longer a waiting period).

Promotions for NTTs by FTE, not calendar year accumulations.

Get to Know Your Contract: How Bargaining Works

By Lorenzo Nencioli, FSU Staff

Spring 15

How does our contract become our contract? For some FSU members, this question brings to mind the old adage about laws and sausage: best not to know how either is made. And while the details of the process may be of interest only to the select few members who serve on the bargaining team, there are 3 basic elements that all members should be aware of: bargaining, ratification, and legislative approval of the contract.
