AAUP Update: Memorandum of Agreement Ratification

Colleagues:

I wanted to provide all of you with a brief update on a key issue that we are dealing with.

I am pleased to report that the vast majority of faculty who voted on the Memorandum of Agreement voted in favor of ratification of the Agreement.  This Agreement focused on the negotiated raises for the current academic year.  On behalf of the Chapter I signed off on the Agreement and forwarded the signed Agreement to the Employee and Labor Relations Office.  The Agreement will now be forwarded to the Board of Trustees for their ratification at the September 27 meeting.  All increases will be retroactive to the start of our current contract period, August 20, 2018.

Next week I will provide you with some additional information regarding our court case against the College.

I hope that all of you are having a smooth start to the current academic year.

On behalf of the Chapter,

Harry Z.

Harry N. Zarin, Professor/Counselor
