FSU Nuts and Bolts: Spring activities


Dear Members, 

Happy New Year and welcome to Spring semester.  Ironically, I write this with snow falling. 

This semester’s first issue of Nuts & Bolts is a preview of upcoming activities.  

Executive Committee Meetings 

Your union is governed by a thirteen-member executive committee comprised of a President, Vice President, four (4) tenured faculty, two (2) pre-tenured faculty, one (1) librarian and four (4) non-tenured track faculty.     

The Point: Act Now!


Greetings Colleagues,

Subject: Contract Action Team: Act Now!

Action Item: Consider Joining It! Please email and if you have interest by end of day February 2nd.

First off: I write this with the fondest hope that you have been well since the Point went on hiatus for winter break. 

Nuts & Bolts: Twas the week before grades due…….


Dear Member, 

Twas the week before grades due, when bluebooks amass 

Not a paper was late, not even a one 

The grading taking place by daylight with care 

In hopes to finish by the deadline for sure 

(My apologizes to our English colleagues and to Clement Clark Moore)  

This is the final Nuts & Bolts of the semester. Before we say goodbye for a while, we wanted to provide a few reminders including one on public higher education funding. 

Winter break communications  

The Point: Talking Back, Speaking Up
