The UAOSU Bargaining Team and the administration team met on Monday, April 22, from 9am to 1pm in the LaSells Stewart Center for our second substantive bargaining session. Forty-six faculty members observed bargaining.
UAOSU introduced six new articles: discipline and termination for cause, dues deduction, union rights, leaves, family and medical leaves, and sabbatical leaves. The administration team did not present any new articles or counter-proposals to the fourteen articles UAOSU exchanged at the 3/23 bargaining session. The administration team asked a few questions about our Savings counterproposal, which had been presented at that session. They then called a caucus, starting at about 10:20am. They stayed in caucus until the end of the session at 1pm.
There are two more bargaining sessions scheduled over the coming week. Please join us on Saturday, April 27 from 9am-5pm in Moreland 206 & Tuesday, April 30 from 9am-1pm. The location for the April 30 session will be announced as soon as it is known. On Saturday, we plan to present articles including professional development, facilities, and more; on Tuesday, we expect to present articles on notice of appointment, annual review, and more. Attending a bargaining session is a great way to stay informed and engaged in the development of our first contract. You can find a full calendar of Spring Term bargaining sessions on our website. We appreciate your support!
