UFC Meeting Schedule
UFC ALL FACULTY meeting.
ALL FACULTY MEETING 14 November (Wednesday) at 4:00 in Dean 104
Come hear Dr. Bill Lyne (WWU faculty and President of the United Faculty of Washington State) speak about HOW WESTERN'S FACULTY BARGAINED AN EXCELLENT CONTRACT!
Earlier this year, Western’s faculty bargained, over the next three years, 13.75% in COLAs, 2.5% in compression adjustments, raises for Chairs, and raises associated with post-tenure review. Further, they solidified workload planning as well as shared governance.
Protect your Scholarship!!!
In a recent Complaint decision, President Gaudino has undermined both workload flexibility and your scholarship. He also expects you to be evaluated based upon work you were not paid to do.
Faculty scholarship is very important. Not only is it a contribution to society, but it is a vital part of our student's education. Directly by the research our students often do; indirectly by increasing the quality of the faculty and the information they teach.
Please, read this document and take action to not only protect yourselves, but also to protect the education our students receive!
