EASY ACTION -- MTA – Defend Higher Ed

11/10/2020

Dear FSU Members,

As you know, the Governor’s proposed budget includes level funding for public colleges and universities through June 30, 2021.  Despite this, public education executives are continuing to make draconian cuts throughout the state.  Salem State is trying to impose a 3-week furlough on faculty and librarians. 

Click on the link below to ask your legislators to bring back laid off and furloughed workers.  It’s super easy.

Update on Status of NTT’s Who Received Non-Reappointment Notices for Fall 20

Dear FSU Members,

We wanted to provide you with a brief update on the status of about 250 of our NTT colleagues who received non-reappointment notices at the end of the Spring 20 semester (see here for more):

Come today Monday 11.2 at 3pm, support NTTs at Faculty Council

11/2/2020

Dear Non-Tenure Track Faculty,  

As elected non-tenure track members of the FSU Executive Committee, we represent your interests and work on your behalf.  All Executive Committee members, regardless of rank, have the same voting rights and authority.   

The Faculty Council does not allow NTTs to serve as elected members, but we are trying to change that. 

The Point: Labor and Democracy

11/2/2020

I cannot too often repeat that Democracy is a word the real gist of which still sleeps, quite unawakened, notwithstanding the resonance and the many angry tempests out of which its syllables have come, from pen or tongue. It is a great word, whose history, I suppose, remains unwritten because that history has yet to be enacted.

--Walt Whitman

Greetings, Colleagues:

We send you warmest wishes and the steadfast hope that you are experiencing good health and some measure of peace in your life.
