Academics Contract Issues

Article 49 Implementation

Dear Colleagues,

At our most recent Formal Labor Management Meeting, concerns were brought to the attention of the administration regarding university exclusions to the Article 49 Provision.

The UUP Buffalo Center was pleased to be informed late last week that “…the Provost has approved a change to UB’s implementation of the Article 49 provision.  Beginning in fall 2023, UB will remove the exclusion of individual instruction including thesis guidance from this program.”.

Even though this will not begin until the Fall 2023 semester, a Thank You goes out to those members who brought this issue to the Chapter so that this specific term and condition of employment at the university could be changed.

“Together we fight, together we win!”

In Solidarity,

Ken Kern
Chapter President
UUP Buffalo Center
