Experienced Contract Negotiators
WE ARE EXPERIENCED NEGOTIATORS!
Our slate of faculty candidates for the EMU-AAUP Executive Committee all have bargaining council and/or negotiating knowledge and experience. Some have been on the last 5 negotiations teams for the EMU-AAUP.
Experience is needed for the 2019 Negotiations with the EMU Administration, as we will be sitting across the table from a financially strapped EMU. Send experienced negotiators!
We need to have faculty who have experience with the process of negotiations, understand the mandatory subjects of bargaining, can bargain to impasse, and remain constructively engaged to prevent the administration from imposing a "last best offer."
We see the following as contract language changes that EMU will try and insist on in Summer 2019:
EMU will not want to give any raises
EMU will want to dramatically increase the premiums we pay for heath care and reduce the benefits we receive
EMU will want to cut its contribution to our TIAA/CREF from 11% to 5%
EMU will continue to erode the bargaining unit.
EMU will want us all to pay for parking!!!
In 2019 YOU NEED US TO NEGOTIATE FOR YOU!
