Our faculty union returns to the bargaining table this morning. Listen to the audio around minute 20 to hear
Chief Negotiator Jen Sandoval present a master class in how to argue for upholding faculty rights to non-reappointment.
Bargaining team member John Raible & UCF administrator Charlie Piper working together
to come to an agreement on Article 12 — Non-Reappointment, and Article 13 — Layoffs and Recall.
We have signed a Tentative Agreement on Article 12 — Non-Reappointment, and Article 13 — Layoffs and Recall!
Our team has successfully protected faculty non-reappointment rights. And for the first time ever, auxiliary funded employees will have contractual rights to non-reappointment notice. Thank you Bargaining Team!
Additional items of note:
- We offered a creative 2-yr salary package that the administration is considering
- We reached agreement to keep Article 8–Appointment status quo with an automatic reopener for future negotiation
- We are close to agreeing on near status quo language for Article 16- Discipline; Article 18–Inventions and Works; and Article 24–Benefits
