UConn-AAUP CEA Update, July 7, 2021

Contract Extension Agreement Update: Day 7 – No Contract Extension Agreement (CEA)

After continued efforts on the part of our negotiating team to reach agreement, the BOT finds itself at a fork in the road. They can either take the high road – fund the professional development, child care and tuition reimbursement and bring their concerns with the coaches to the negotiating table where they belong, or they can take the low road – file a petition with the Labor Board and roll the dice with the Board that coaches meet two of the four criteria as “managers,” with the “agency” being UConn (see: UConn-AAUP Website) .

It’s time for UConn-AAUP members to be heard. Contact the President, Provost and Deans, and inform them this has got to stop.

After a more than a year of extraordinary efforts by the faculty, the advancement of your careers through travel and professional development funding is being held up because the BOT refuses to negotiate contractual issues at the negotiating table. They would rather run to the Labor Board in an attempt to take the coaches out of the contract instead of signing a contract extension agreement.  Their goal is to diminish the membership and strength of the UConn-AAUP union.

Please use all social media means to alert our members that we are in #Day7NoExtension
