TAUP Members Approve Delay in Elections

TAUP members voted by 94.4% Yes to 5.6% No, to approve the following motion:

The annual election of new Executive Committee Members and Delegates for terms from 2016 to 2019 will be delayed until TAUP members pass the amended Constitution and Bylaws or, at the latest, until October 2016.

The new EC-proposed Constitution and Bylaws will realign the Executive Committee and create some new structures and positions.  Thus, elections will be scheduled as soon after approval as practicable during either the Spring or Fall Semester.

If current members of the Executive Committee or Delegates do not wish to serve beyond their term, then the remaining members of the Executive Committee will follow the procedure laid out in Article IV of the Bylaws to seek replacements.

TAUP is continuing to meet with members individually and in town hall meetings to discuss the proposed changes.  So far we have met with hundreds of members.

TAUP Town Hall Meeting in CLA

Dear TAUP Members in CLA: 

You're invited to an informal meeting/discussion about the proposed changes to the TAUP Constitution & Bylaws.  We've talked individually with some of you.  If you'd like to hear from your follow union members in CLA, this is a chance to get together to ask questions and discuss the implications of bringing adjunct faculty into TAUP.

We will meet in the Weigley Room (Gladfelter 914) on 4/12 from 11:00-12:30 and on 4/15 from 12:00-1:30. 

You don't have to stay the whole time or come at the very beginning.

Please RSVP by replying to this email - or tell me what would be a more convenient date or time.

I look forward to this important discussion.

CST Members - TAUP Town Hall Meeting
Monday, April 4
4:00 to 5:30

As one of a series of town hall meetings, TAUP is hosting a discussion of proposed changes to our Constitution & Bylaws, giving TAUP members a chance to talk with colleagues and get questions answered.  Please let me know if you plan to attend.

Bring your questions and concerns.  We’ll discuss all aspects of accreting adjunct faculty into TAUP.  All TAUP members and adjuncts that have signed membership cards are welcome, though of course we hope CST members, especially, will come.

Briefly, our proposals are:
• Three faculty constituency groups (tenure-track, nontenure-track, and adjunct), plus a librarian constituency, that will elect their own representatives to constituency councils and to the Executive Committee.
• Leadership in which every constituency has a strong voice and is represented in all TAUP business.
• Commitment to furthering our shared goals through collective bargaining, organizing, political action, community engagement, and the work of our members.

We want to talk with every TAUP member about these ideas before we send out a formal proposal for a ballot. We have received valuable feedback from attendees to previous such meetings. Only current members will be eligible to vote and 2/3 of those voting will need to approve.

If you're full-time but not yet a member, you should join.  If you're adjunct, sign a membership card so that when the Constitution & Bylaws change, your voice will be heard.  Membership gives us a strong and united voice at the bargaining table and helps to ensure that your voice is heard.
