Marlene Kim, President
On Wednesday, September 17th, a delegation of union members from across the UMass campuses attended the Board of Trustees meeting at UMass Lowell to protest the give-backs at bargaining. We were asking that the Trustees tell the President and universities to “take back the take-backs.” For the FSU, this means limiting sick leave accrual to 120 days.
Dear FSU Members,
• We have a tentative agreement now for raises of 3.5% per year over three years (split between a 2.1% cost of living and 1.4% merit).
