Bargaining update (10/28/15)
The FUSA bargaining team met with administration yesterday, October 27, 2015.
The team proposed an across the board salary increase of $2,190.00 for all faculty. FUSA provided a rational for the proposal and the approximate cost of implementation. The administration rejected the proposal and offered an oral counter proposal of a one-time payment of $1,000. FUSA rejected the counter proposal. The administration agreed to bring a different counter proposal to the next bargaining session.
FUSA proposed several suggestions for lowering textbook costs and examples of courses using common textbooks. FUSA proposed that the faculty, administration, and institutional research conduct a study to assess textbook costs, where students buy textbooks, and digital textbook use across the college. The administration and FUSA agreed to this proposal.
Please join us at the next bargaining session on Tuesday November 3, 2015, 2:30-4:30 p.m., in YSSB 309. See the attached flier.
