Greetings FTNTT Faculty Members:

Our contract negotiations are underway! There was a bit of a delay as the University finished the TT Negotiations. Your bargaining team consists of Chief Negotiator Kim Winebrenner, Tom Warren, David Graff, Tina Bhargava, and Tracy Laux.

The University’s team is Chief Negotiator Jack Witt, Sue Averill, Amoaba Gooden, Angela Spalsbury and Ken Burhanna. Both teams met on July 17th to go over preliminary items. Most importantly, we went over which articles of the contract we would open up for discussion during negotiations. We also scheduled three more negotiating sessions: July 24, July 29, and August 2.  I will keep you posted of our progress as we continue, but keep in mind that it is normal for the economic issues to come to the table last. If you should have any questions, please contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
