UFCT Local 1460 Fall ’14 General Membership Meetings

Dear UFCT Local 1460 Members,

The current 2011-2015 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) will expire on August 31, 2015.

The UFCT Local 1460 has been in ‘contract’ with the Pratt Administration since 1972 when the Union was first granted recognition as “the exclusive bargaining representative for all full-time and regular part-time members of the faculty presently or hereafter employed by the Institute in the bargaining unit certified as appropriate for election by the National Labor Relations Board”.

It is in this tradition that we will be calling for negotiations to begin in spring 2015, thus entering a new negotiation-cycle w/the Pratt Administration for our next CBA.

The Union wishes to gather input from all bargaining unit members regarding said negotiations: What are the most pressing issues at hand?, What issues should comprise our ‘slate of demands’?

Our delegates have started this process in individual department/area(s) and collectively as an ‘Assembly’ which is open to all dues-paying members.

As UFCT President, I will therefore be holding three open-form ‘General Membership Meetings’ this Fall ’14 semester:

(1) Tuesday, 10/28 – ENGR #109, 5:00PM – 6:00PM

(2) Monday, 11/17 – ENGR #111, 5:00PM – 6:00PM

(3) Thursday, 12/11 – ENGR #109, 5:00PM – 6:00PM

Please bring your questions and concerns about the negotiation process: What is a negotiation?, What happens in a negotiation?, When is an issue or demand withdrawn?, How does the Union counter an administrative demand?

Directly following each GMM, will be a ‘Happy-Hour (two or three!) at the newly re-opened Brooklyn Public House (DeKalb & Vanderbilt).

Looking forward!

In Solidarity,
