UConn-AAUP Responds Strongly to 5-Year Financial Plan:
Thank you to everyone who attended the last two webinar sessions held by UConn-AAUP on UConn’s 5-year Financial Plan. It was a powerful show of solidarity to have more than 250 people at the sessions and over 150 people attend the informational picket outside of the UConn library last week. As a chapter we will continue to share information as we learn about it and continue to support efforts to stop the cuts within departments and units.  We will continue to post information on our website here: 2024 UConn Budget Information – UConn-AAUP (uconnaaup.org)

UConn-AAUP Organizing Committee
UConn-AAUP Organizing Committee will continue to develop the union’s collective response and strategy to the Administration’s disastrous budget plan.  There are many ways to stay informed and get involved.  If you are interested in finding out more about future actions or information, please contact Sam Sommers smsommers@gmail.com or Gina DeVivo Brassaw ginadb@uconnaaup.org for details.
