Survey on budget cuts and lobby day this Wednesday

Dear Colleague,

We will compile and share this information with the UMass Boston community. No individual names or other identifying information will be shared. 

We will use this information along with a coalition of students and unions at UMass Boston to fight budget cuts on this campus.

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. 

A Gathering of NTT Faculty

Dear NTT Colleague,

The fifth meeting for NTTs will be on Sunday, February 5, at UMass Boston in room 3540 on the third floor of the Campus Center from 10 to 2

This is a group from the four UMass campuses who share common concerns, help one another, and speak with one voice as much as possible.  Many community college NTTs have also joined our group.

Email today to keep your health care cost share from increasing

Dear Colleague,

Once again, we need to fight to keep your cost share for your health insurance from increasing.  Please take action TODAY to fight unfair changes to health insurance for educators, other public employees and retirees.

Click HERE to e-mail members of the Group Insurance Commission and urge them to oppose plan design changes that would affect state and municipal employees, their dependents and retirees.

Protest the UMB budget cuts this Wed at 9 am

In the wake of the recently announced campus budget cuts, and with the promise of more cuts to come, it is crucial that we hold the Board of Trustees accountable for the role they are playing in threatening our institution's urban mission.  

Depending on weather, we will be gathering to picket outside 1 Beacon Street at 7:30 am and then head into the Administration and Finance Committee meeting of the Board of Trustees at 9 am to support our union speakers, Faculty Staff Union President Marlene Kim and Professional Staff Union vice-president Anneta Argyres.
