Bowling Green State University and the BGSU Faculty Association (BGSU-FA), the university’s faculty union, have announced that they have reached an agreement in principle on the union’s first contract.
Details are being finalized and must be ratified by the union’s membership and approved by the BGSU Board of Trustees.
“We’re pleased to have reached a mutually beneficial agreement with the Faculty Association,” said BGSU President Mary Ellen Mazey. “This will allow us to move forward in concert with the faculty to achieve our goals as an institution.”
“This is a fair first contract for our members and for the university. Significant compromises were agreed to by both parties. We look forward to implementing the contract and continuing to work for the good of BGSU,” said BGSU-FA President David J. Jackson.
Jackson and Mazey expressed appreciation for the work of Robert Stein, the mediator appointed by the State Employee Relations Board, to facilitate negotiations. Stein is a BGSU alumnus.
The Faculty Association is expected to take the agreement to its membership in early April.
The BGSU Board of Trustees will likely hold a special meeting to vote on the agreement. The next regularly scheduled board meeting is May 3.
