Hello TT Faculty members,

I regret to inform you that AAUP-KSU has now officially invoked its right to declare impasse under Article XXIV, Section 3.A of the CBA and will be inviting assistance by the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service.  AAUP-KSU also plans to invoke its right under Article XXIV, Section 3.A to request fact-finding on the outstanding issues.  Such a request may be made no earlier than 14 days nor later than 28 days after the first mediated negotiation session.

Hello TT Faculty members,
 
I’d like to provide you with an update on the status of the negotiations for a successor to our 2015 contract.  Since our last update, the parties have met three times: September 19th, September 26th, and October 10th.  I regret to inform you that very little progress was made at any of those meetings and it is increasingly likely that we will end up in fact-finding as we did in the 2015 negotiations.  The parties will meet again on October 24th.

Hello TT Faculty members,

I’d like to provide you with an update on the status of the negotiations for a successor to our 2015 contract.  Since our last update, the parties have met twice: August 29th and September 5th.  I regret to inform you that very little progress on salaries and benefits was made at either of those meetings and I fear that it is increasingly likely that we will end up in fact-finding as we did in the 2015 negotiations.  The parties will meet again on September 19th.

Hello TT Faculty members,

I’d like to provide you with a brief update on the status of the negotiations for a successor to our 2015 contract.  Things are continuing to proceed more slowly than we would prefer.  Since my last update, the parties have met just twice: on July 19th and July 25th.  Sessions previously scheduled on July 27th and July 31st were cancelled at the administration’s request.  The parties are scheduled to meet next on August 9th and August 14th.

Hello TT Faculty members,

I’d like to provide you with a brief update on the status of the negotiations for a successor to our 2015 contract.  Things are proceeding a bit slower than we would prefer.  To date, the parties have met just three times: on May 31st to establish the Ground Rules, on June 11th to exchange the parties’ respective lists of articles to open in this round of negotiations, and on July 2nd to exchange proposals on several articles.  A previously scheduled session on June 27th was cancelled by the administration team.  The parties are scheduled to meet next on July 19th.
