FSU Approves MOA on Expanded Bargaining


Dear FSU Members,

At yesterday’s Special Session of the General Assembly, the membership unanimously approved (43-0) the attached agreement with Administration allowing up to 30 FSU members to attend each bargaining session (in addition to the core bargaining team).  This represents a significant step towards expanded bargaining – and a more engaged, transparent, and powerful union.

Sign the FSU Class Size Pledge!


Dear Colleagues,

Even though over 300 of our NTT colleagues have already been sent non-reappointment notices, we, the remaining faculty, can support our non-reappointed colleagues by pledging to resist larger class sizes and refusing to enroll students over course caps for the upcoming fall semester (see the contract language in Article 15.4 of the contract).

Reminder: FSU Special session -- Thurs 6/25/20, 2:30-3:30


Dear FSU Members,

To follow up on the below email, we wanted to send you the proposed/tentative agreement that we will be discussing on Thursday (see attached).  It was written by the Administration to reflect the agreement we discussed in last bargaining session.   See you Thursday! (please note that the meeting date was incorrectly listed as 6/26 in our previous email).
