UFF-FAU, your faculty union, will be holding its annual Non Tenure Track (NTT) Promotion Workshop on Sept. 18 @ 12 PM in the Culture and Society Building, Room 128. Faculty interested in going up for promotion this year or next should attend. If you cannot attend the entire session, feel free to attend what you can. See the attached documents that can assist you in putting together your portfolio. Also, you want to check with your department or college to see what specific criteria you must meet for promotion.
The promotional system was instituted six years ago after the union had spoken with instructors about their working conditions and the ways in which their salaries have stagnated. As a result, we negotiated a promotion system with our administration, which can be found under Article 23 of our collective bargaining agreement (found at: http://uff-fau.org/what-we-do/collective-bargaining/ ). We will be negotiating the contract again in spring 2018 and would like to further improve the promotional system. We will be sending a bargaining survey soon, so please provide us with your feedback on it. Furthermore, you can contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org with your comments. Without the union and the collective bargaining agreement, the NTT promotional system would not have been created and secured. In order to guarantee this gain, please join the union.
