ADMINISTRATION IMPOSES PARKING FEE INCREASE ON STUDENTS AND NON-UNION EMPLOYEES
Dear FSU members,
This just in from the MTA…
The MTA is seeking support for several amendments to the Senate Ways and Means Committee’s budget, released on May 15. The Senate budget plan increases funding for K-12 education over the House budget, but it proposes spending for public higher education significantly below House levels. Despite research showing that investments in early education help children be successful in school, the Senate plan makes no new investments in early education.
The spring edition of the Union News is here. In this issue we take a look at parental leave, on and off the tenure track, and examine the possible impact of the move to 2-2 teaching schedule (and ask for your help in monitoring its implementation). Also featured: changes in employee health insurance, public higher education advocacy day and a strike by teachers in Haiti. We hope you enjoy the issue!
These are the results of the FSU executive committee elections for AY 2014. Congratulations to all the these newly-elected (or re-elected) members.
