On Tuesday, June 28, UFV and the FSA reached a tentative collective agreement through mediation. We greatly appreciate the considerable effort and work by both bargaining teams and everyone involved throughout this process. As per protocol, the FSA will release the details of this new revised tentative agreement to its members at a time of their choosing.
The UFV executive supports this revised agreement and is recommending approval to the UFV Board of Governors. We are seeking Board ratification as soon as possible in July, in order to expedite the faculty and staff salary increases (and back pay, including the economic stability dividend) that come with UFV Board and FSA approvals.
