Updates From the FSU

2/10/17

Dear Colleague,

Welcome back to campus for those of you who are returning.  For those of you who are new, welcome to UMass Boston.  This is what is going on:

  Please take the FSU bargaining survey. It was sent on Tuesday, Feb. 7th with the subject:  ‘Your input is needed for bargaining.’ Because it is being sent by a third party, you may have received a notice saying that it failed the fraud detector test.  It is legitimate!  Please take it!  A reminder notice will be sent today. 

FSU Bargaining Survey

We are bargaining our new contract and need your feedback. A bargaining survey was emailed to all bargaining unit members. Completing the survey won’t take long, and your input is critical.  If you have ideas or suggestions beyond our prompts, please enter them in the fields at the end of each category. NOTE- We have had some technical problems with the survey that have since been resolved.

Update on CAPS compensation, course caps, and grievances

Dear Colleague,

Below is an update on compensation and course caps for CAPS distance learning courses (please see here for a general update on grievances, including the issue below). 

CAPS online course compensation

As many of you know, the Administration changed the compensation formula for online courses.  The FSU notified the Administration that they could not change the compensation for CAPS courses during bargaining.  The Administration, although willing to bargain over additional compensation, is still insisting on immediate changes for the Spring semester.
