Parking Passes


Dear FSU members,

You no doubt saw the university's latest email regarding parking today, stating that you must apply for your semester parking pass by tomorrow (September 1st) or the pass will not activate before the September 7th start of classes. The email also states that if you apply for your pass after September 1st, your pass may take four days to activate and you will have to pay the daily rate for parking in the meantime. 

This email from management suggests a departure from our parking Memorandum of Agreement with the University, which states that fall semester passes are active beginning September 1st -- not September 4th or September 7th. The University's apparent inability to implement our previously bargained MOA is yet another reason why we have opposed the imposition of a new parking system outside of a bargaining framework. We continue to pursue all possible options to resist the unilateral imposition of this onerous system.

In the meantime, we urge those of you who apply for semester passes to save all receipts for any daily-rate parking you are forced to pay while the University activates your parking pass. We do not believe you should be forced to pay the daily rate after purchasing a semester pass, so we encourage you to document the additional amount you paid out.

We will provide further updates to you on our attempts to hold the administration to the parking agreements we have previously negotiated in good faith. Thank you for your continued support and engagement with us during this process.


Your FSU parking bargaining team:

Joe Brown and Caroline Coscia
