Dear FSU member,
The Spring 2014 edition of Union News is hot off the presses (look for a hard copy within the next few days in your campus mailbox). This issue features:
We thought you’d be interested to know about additional ORP-SERS retirement workshops. Again, these workshops are not related to the class action concerning 33 UMB non-tenure track faculty members.

Subject: Late spring retirement consulting opportunities in Boston
Please join your fellow Lecturers/NTT Faculty for a friendly end-of-semester gathering on Wednesday, May 14 (the last day of classes!) from 6-9 pm.
Please see below for more important information on legislation to allow Optional Retirement Program (ORP) participants a onetime opportunity to switch to the MA State Employee Retirement System (MSERS). This legislation is referred to as Section 60 (again, this is NOT related to the ORP-SERS class action affecting 30 or so UMB lecturers).
