FSU Approves MOA on Expanded Bargaining


Dear FSU Members,

At yesterday’s Special Session of the General Assembly, the membership unanimously approved (43-0) the attached agreement with Administration allowing up to 30 FSU members to attend each bargaining session (in addition to the core bargaining team).  This represents a significant step towards expanded bargaining – and a more engaged, transparent, and powerful union.
