Where’s the Money?

The $1,000 bonus negotiated in our MOA is scheduled to appear in the February 17 paycheck.  We have requested a meeting with management on the dates of the 2.25% retro from April 1, 2011 and the Feb. 1 2.25% increases due from our Settlement Agreement. As soon as we clarify those payment dates we will get word out to the membership.

We Have An Agreement

After a voting session across the three campuses yesterday the URA-AFT reports that there was a convincing majority of votes cast to approve the Salary Freeze Settlement and the Memorandum of Agreement (“MOA”) as presented. We could not have done this without our member’s support and thank you for your efforts. We will keep you apprised of the dates of payments shortly. Again, thank you for your participation in this ratification process.
