We are pleased to inform you that the membership has ratified the Memorandum of Understanding to restore Career faculty FTE, institute a payroll reduction plan, and allow faculty to resubmit requests for promotion by a vote of 461 to 34. The negotiations over this agreement were not easy, and UA leadership appreciates everyone who watched the bargaining and lent their support.
We still have work to do to change the Career contract system. We will keep you informed of the progress we are making. We anticipate asking membership to ratify an agreement on a new system in fall.
Again, thank you for your participation and activism; we will need to continue to stand and work together in the coming months. Bargaining resumes in January with additional challenges coming our way. Please feel free to reach out with any questions as we approach fall term.
