Research intensive semester for pre-tenure faculty

11/30/2018

Dear colleague,

As you may know, our most recent contract calls for us to bargain with the administration of each college/school to establish policies that assure that pre-tenure faculty have access to a Research Intensive Semester, or a reduction in workload, to help us build our scholarly profiles (see MOU 8 of the contract). This is good because it gives us a chance to push for a strong set of policies together.

We will be receiving our raises!

11/30/18

Dear Colleague,

The UMass System Office informed our campus (and all UMass campuses) to disperse your raises—all of it—4% total on your base salary (from the 2% increase due July 1, 2017, and the additional 2% increase due July 1, 2018), and retroactive pay back to July 1, 2017.  You will be receiving this in your December 14 paycheck. 

URGENT: Call Marty Meehan today to get your raise.

11/29/18

Dear Colleague,

As you know, the UMass Presidents Office is telling us that there is not enough money appropriated for our raises.  But we know that money has been appropriated for the first year of the raises.  We have been pressing for at least that raise, due July 1, 2017, even if all the money has not come for the second year of our raises, due last July 1, 2018.
