Hello TT Faculty members,
AAUP-KSU is pleased to report that the membership has voted to ratify the Tentative Agreement. Of those who voted, 96.12% voted ‘yes’. Turnout was a little over 66%—a fairly strong showing for a vote conducted while Faculty are off contract.
We have been informed that the Board of Trustees will not meet until June 26th to vote on the Tentative Agreement. We have every reason to believe that they too will vote to ratify the new contract. If so, Faculty who were members of the bargaining unit at least one full-semester of AY 17/18 will likely receive their retroactive payout for AY 18/19 sometime in July.

Chief Negotiator, AAUP-KSU Tenured & Tenure Track Unit
