Governing Board Approves Proposed Collective Bargaining Agreement

On Friday, August 26, 2016, the AAUP-UC Governing Board unanimously agreed to approve the new proposed Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) between the AAUP-UC and Utica College.

This tentative approval is now subject to a ratification vote from the AAUP-UC dues paying membership.

The procedure for the AAUP-UC ratification is as follows:

1) The new contract will be typed up with all of the tentative agreements inserted into the contract. All contract language/changes will be verified by both the AAUP-UC and Utica College. This process will take several weeks.

2) Once Step #1 is completed, the Governing Board will call an AAUP-UC membership information meeting.

3) At least one week prior to this information meeting, the Governing Board will send the tentatively approved contract to the AAUP-UC membership. The new contract, as well as a copy of the old contract, will be distributed electronically.

4) One week after the informational meeting, secret ballots will be mailed to the active membership for the ratification vote. This ballot may be electronic.

As always, if you have questions about the contract or any workplace issue, please don’t hesitate to contact AAUP-UC President, Paul J. MacArthur or any other member of the Governing Board.

Thank you for your continued support of the AAUP-UC.


Tentative Agreement Reached

On Thursday, August 18, 2016, after 16 months of bargaining, the negotiating teams of the AAUP-UC and Utica College administration reached a tentative agreement for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

This tentative agreement will now be brought to the AAUP-UC Governing Board for approval. If the AAUP-UC Governing Board approves the agreement, it will be brought forward to the AAUP-UC dues paying membership for a ratification vote. An informational meeting will be held before any membership vote and a copy of the new contract will be distributed to the membership before this informational meeting. The timeline for ratification will be presented as soon as it is available.

Additionally, the Utica College administration will need to have the contract ratified by the Utica College Board of Trustees.

To allow for this process to be completed, the current CBA has been extended until October 24, 2016.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns about negotiations, or any workplace issue, please don’t hesitate to contact the AAUP-UC President, Paul J. MacArthur or any other member of the Governing Board.

Thank you for your continued support of the AAUP-UC!
