During our meeting Thursday, 2/19 our bargaining committee continued to discuss the non-economic aspects of our bargaining agenda, and made several new proposals related to Academic Excellence.  This included addressing members’ concerns about clarity of job assignment, transparency of appointment/reappointment criteria, monitoring student/teacher ratios, providing more comprehensive training when necessary and accessing instruments and equipment necessary to maintain quality.  We also continued to press the University to respond to our outstanding information requests, particularly about the GAIP Health Plan.

Our next bargaining sessions will take place next Wednesday (Condon 311, time TBA) and Thursday (Condon 311, 9:00 a.m.).  All members are encouraged to attend!
