Getting Right To The Point

5/18/2020

Colleagues,

This week I am going to get right to The Point: please read and consider signing this document—a letter in support of laid-off instructors at UMB which will be sent to the campus upper administration. 

Letter to NTT Faculty

5/18/2020

Dear Colleagues,

With the end of classes last week, we want to congratulate you all on the amazing work of this semester, even as we must bring important and disappointing news.  As many of you have no doubt already heard, several days ago the UMass Boston Administration took drastic action in the name of preparing for a worst-case scenario for the Fall.  Chief among them is an initiative to reduce our ranks, targeting all those NTT faculty not yet on continuing appointment. 

Contact Congress for federal money and an update on legislative efforts

Dear Colleague:

We know that many of you are concerned about the non-reappointments of NTT associate lecturers and some lecturers, and budget cutbacks. We will be following up directly with members who have received such notices with more information.  In the meantime, here’s how you can help:

All union meeting tomorrow, letter to Meehan

Dear Colleague,

We hope you are doing well. Below is the information for tomorrow’s town hall and information  on a union coalition letter we signed and sent to President Meehan.

► All-Union Meeting on the Budget Cuts: Tomorrow, Tuesday 5/12, 12-1pm.  We will be discussing what is happening on other campuses, at UMB, and will plan and organize for anticipated budget cuts.   See the attached flier. 

Town Hall on Tuesday and help pass statewide and federal aid for higher education

5/7/2020

Dear Colleague,

 

I hope the end of the semester is going well for you. The FSU is organizing with the other unions on campus around the university’s planned budget cuts, working with the MTA to protect adjuncts and others at the state level, and (via the MTA) asking for more aid at the federal level to prevent budget cuts. Please join these efforts below:
