Bargaining Alert 11: Degrading the Work Environment
May 26, 2011
Dear QUFA Members,
In QUFA Bargaining Alert! 11, Chief Negotiator Allan Manson describes how the Administration is "rejecting QUFA's efforts to improve working conditions and ameliorate our increasing workloads (proposals that in most cases involved only very modest allocation of resources) while sticking to their aggressive proposals to curtail job security and faculty control over working conditions."
He also addresses the major question of pensions: "The big question remains whether the Administration will bring the pension to our bargaining table. QUFA has made its position clear: any discussion of restructuring should take place, as discussions respecting the pension always have, at the multi-lateral employee group table, which meets next on 31 May 2011."
