Faculty Rights Tip of the Week: Who are the faculty?

A recent Faculty Rights Tip mentioned the importance of the definitions found in Article 2 of our Collective Bargaining Agreement. Definitions are crucial for correctly interpreting and enforcing provisions of the faculty contract.

Article 2.13 of our contract defines “Faculty Unit Employee” as

“… a bargaining unit member who is a full­time faculty unit employee, part­time faculty unit employee, probationary faculty unit employee, tenured faculty unit employee, temporary faculty unit employee, coaching faculty unit employee, counselor faculty unit employee, faculty employee, librarian faculty unit employee, extension for credit faculty unit employee, or lecturer employee.”

Any provision of the contract that refers to “faculty unit employee” applies to every member of our bargaining unit in this definition. We are one faculty.
