To the University Community:
We are very pleased to announce that we have successfully reached agreement with Union Local 7902 - ACT/UAW, representing most of the university's part-time faculty, for a new five-year contract. This week the union unanimously ratified the contract. The new contract not only extends many of the conditions and benefits negotiated in their last agreement but also makes improvements for both the university and the part time faculty.
We are especially grateful to the union bargaining team for their dedication to reaching agreement on a contract which is both fair and consistent with the aims and values of both the faculty and the university. We are also grateful to the university's bargaining team as well as the many other administrators and academic leaders who participated in the process. Well done everyone and congratulations.
