ALRA Decision and Order 301
The decision from the Alaska Labor Relations Agency (ALRA) has finally been rendered.  Here is a link to the decision: ALRA Decision and Order 301.  The UAFT has appealed this decision and a stay of implementation has been approved until the appeal has worked its way through the courts.  Bottom line, using my Coast Guard lingo – proceed as Ops Normal until you hear anything differently.  That means that you will remain a part of UAFT as the appeal process progresses or you are notified otherwise.

New CBA posted
The January 1, 2014 – December 31, 2014 Collective Bargaining Agreement is posted under the "Contract" tab.  The CBA was extended for one year because neither party (the University and UAFT) provided intent to open negotiations as required in Article 1.  Bottom line on this is that UAFT will receive a 2.5% ATB salary increase effective with the first pay period after July 1, 2014, which for most of us is in the fall semester, FY15.
