Fall 2019- LIUFF President Welcome...

Sep 6, 2019 by

Dear Colleagues, Happy Labor Day!   Welcome back to the 2019 fall term.  The LIUFF leadership began anew this June with an invigorated executive committee.  We have already begun our important work to address the LIUFF Trust Fund for adjunct healthcare and to form an election committee.  LIUFF will be running an election this month to fill vacant officer positions (Grievance and Vice President). While vigilantly enforcing our collectively bargained contract this summer we have successfully fought the Administration on several fronts.  These include: 1.Stopping the Administration from instituting yet another iteration of a workload policy prorating full-time and adjunct faculty pay based on the # of students in a class.  The Administration has admitted this policy is unenforceable.   They stood down.  We won! 2.Stopping the Administration from advertising faculty positions in the...

Fall 2018- LIUFF President Welcome...

Sep 1, 2018 by

Dear Colleagues, Welcome back to campus after what I hope was a productive and restful summer, and a well-earned Labor Day holiday. The academic year ahead promises possibility and challenge, and I look forward to working with all of you to make meaningful progress toward the university we have committed ourselves to: one that puts students and faculty at the center of everything we do. Over the summer, your union leadership has worked hard to enforce our collectively bargained contract. We have filed multiple grievances in response to an unprecedented wave of tenure denials and non-reappointments. We see these denials as a direct attack on the faculty, and are pushing back hard. We are aggressively tracking other violations of the contract, and encourage you to reach out to your union representatives with your workplace...
