Merit Bonus and Other Updates

In response to a UFF-FSU Facilitation request and meeting (see Sec. 20.8(a) of the Collective Bargaining Agreement), FSU Administration representatives notified UFF-FSU representatives on Monday that additional merit bonus distributions will be made in several colleges and other academic units.  The Facilitation was initiated because UFF-FSU analysis indicated certain units distributed less bonus funds than called for by the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) negotiated between the Administration and UFF.  Bargaining Co-Chair Dr. Scott Hannahs, Grievance
Chair Dr. Lee Stepina, UFF Service Unit Director Tom Wazlavek, and I conducted
the analysis and represented the UFF in the Faciliation meeting.

Colleges/units that should see substantial additional distributions include Motion Picture Arts (Film School), Student Affairs, Social Work, Institute for Science and Public Affairs, Graduate School, Ringling Center, Human Sciences, Undergraduate Studies, Visual Arts, Theatre, and Dance, Learning Systems Institute, and Education.
