The Point: The Ability to Function


Greetings, Colleagues:

Happy New Year!

I truly hope you got what you needed—rest, focus, fun—over this winter break. 

Welcome Back – member meeting on Wednesday the 26th


Dear Members,

Goodbye 2021….and hello 2022!  We hope you got a well-deserved break and are ready for what promises to be a challenging Spring semester.  

The University’s Covid safety protocols are not where the FSU would like them to be, especially in terms of testing, masking, and social distancing, but we are nonetheless returning to face-to-face teaching this semester.  Requests to temporarily move your class to a remote modality should be made through your Department Chair.   

Bargaining Update – Details about Tentative Agreement


Dear FSU Members,

As we reported earlier, the FSU’s Core Bargaining Team reached a tentative agreement on the 2020-2023 contract on December 22nd.  We are currently translating everything into contract language and a presentable form.

We have reached agreement on a new contract!


Dear FSU Members,

The FSU’s Core Bargaining Team reached a general agreement on the 2020-2023 contract last night sometime after 11pm.  There is still a lot of work to be done to translate everything into contract language and a presentable form – but we have an agreement.

We will provide a more extensive update in the New Year – as well as member forums to discuss the agreement, circulation of the agreement, ratification, etc.

Bargaining Today – please join


Hi All,

We bargained for 3 hours yesterday and will do so again today.   The pace of bargaining has picked up considerably.  We are now making forward progress!   So you better join the team today if you want to participate in this round of bargaining – time is running out to take part in the fun!
