Welcome From the Faculty Staff Union

9/6/2022

Dear Members, 

Happy new academic year!  The next few days are exciting as we reconnect with colleagues, meet new colleagues, greet our students, and try to find our classrooms.   Since last semester, the plaza has added new pavers, the quad is starting to take shape and parking Lot D is back open.  

The Faculty Staff Union (FSU) is gearing up for a busy year.    

Update: Healey Library actions needed

8/11/2022

Dear FSU Members,

Yesterday we informed you of an email we sent to administration regarding working conditions in Healey Library.  At that time, we had received no acknowledgment or reply.

Wednesday afternoon we received a reply from Joel Posner, HR Labor Relations which is below.

We are meeting with him this afternoon.  

Thank you for supporting our librarians.

Sincerely, 

Caroline Coscia                                 Jeff Melnick 

FSU President                                   FSU Vice President 

FSU: Healey Library actions needed

8/10/2022

Dear FSU members,

We share with you an email sent August 8th to Chancellor Marcelo Suárez-Orozco and UMB leadership responsible for facilities and environmental health. As of the sending of this email, we have yet to receive an acknowledgement or reply.  

Our librarians are working in a building where their workspaces have temperatures of over 80 degrees.  This is unacceptable.  

Please feel free to contact the email recipients with your concerns. 

Sincerely, 

Caroline Coscia                                 Jeff Melnick
