In the May 20th negotiations, the teams agreed to make no changes to two open articles, Article 5 (Academic Freedom) and Article 16 (Disciplinary Action and Job Abandonment), in order to concentrate on the remaining open articles, which center on economic issues. This compromise was made in the face of the parties being unable to agree on exact language that would protect the rights of both faculty and the administration.
Negotiations resume on June 17 to pursue Article 23 (Salaries, including Market Equity) and Article 22 (Sabbaticals). All faculty members are welcome to join us at 2:00 at the FSU Training Center. Bargaining Updates are posted on the UFF-FSU website.
