From the Desk of the President


As you are aware, a number of term faculty, including some on the tenure-track, have been non-renewed in the past few months.  Your union is vigorously combating this egregious and unacceptable situation.  Some of our members have asked why the UUP has not gone public.  Simply, we feel that we can be more successful at protecting our members by working behind the scenes. Should we go public, it is likely that the administration will dig in their heels and stick to the letter of our contract.  Non-renewals of term employees are allowed under our current contract.  If the time comes when we feel we must go public, we will.  In the mean time, quiet diplomacy has had some success.

In solidarity,

Kevin Moriarty, UUP Chapter President
