Update on 2018 Contract Ratification
The contract between UNTF and MSU has been ratified by UNTF membership in June 2018. The 2018-2022 contract is currently being typeset and will be available shortly.**
Click the link below for the 2014-2018 contract, also called a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).
Our contract is collective: it applies to all our members. The CBA is the backbone of our union because it sets the minimum standards for pay, benefits and working conditions for all of our members. Remember, any department can (and many do) exceed these minimum standards!
Similarly, this contract is set through a process of bargaining. Both parties meet to negotiate changes to this contract before its expiration. Negotiations for our third contract ended in May of 2018.
Finally, our contract represents a legal agreement between Michigan State University and the Union of Nontenure-Track Faculty. Representatives of both parties – including the Provost, the Vice President and Treasurer, and the Associate Provost – have signed this document agreeing to uphold the provisions therein.
