AFSCME Collective Bargaining Update 2014

AFSCME Collective Bargaining Update 2014

AFSCME Local 3342 and USF management have reached a tentative agreement which includes:

  • A 3% raise to base pay for all in-unit employees who do not have “…a current ‘Needs Improvement’ or ‘Unsatisfactory’ on their evaluation of record as of the pay period prior to the effective date of the increase.” Given that we are working hard to hold our ratification vote on Friday, November 21st, we expect that effective date to be January 2, 2015. (Article 21)
  • A definition of “progressive discipline” indicating that its primary purpose is to provide an opportunity to improve employee performance. (Article 2)
  • The providing to the union of a list of newly hired members of the bargaining unit each quarter. (Article 5)
  • Arbitrator expenses to be split between the University and the Union when grievances end in arbitration. (Article 6)
  • An extension of the timeframe for getting employee signatures on grievance forms. (Article 6)
  • Respectful and private discipline. (Article 7)
  • Contract language reflecting policy that calls for the layoff of temporary workers before permanent. (Article 8)
  • The substitution of a reference to state Workers’ Comp law with a reference to current USF policy. (Article 29)
