Bargaining Invite and Update


Dear FSU Members,

The Point: Lemonade


Greetings, Colleagues:

A funny thing happened on the way to this week’s Point.  I had planned to write about last week’s bargaining session, which was held last Tuesday afternoon.  But then I didn’t make it to the “table.”  I was there as usual, Zoom link fired up, ready to observe the proceedings as I have been doing for the past year as part our union’s expanded bargaining team. 

Bargaining on Tuesday - we need you


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. 

REMINDER: FSU General Assembly Meeting- TOMORROW (Thurs), 10/7, 3:30-5- Updates on Collective Bargaining, Etc.
