Dear Students and Colleagues,

Today at negotiations we won everything:  a significant pay increase for PT faculty, more stable appointments for FT contingent faculty, and maintaining our voice as one union for both part-time and full-time contingent faculty.  We are very pleased to announce that on the eve of our strike, the administration met all our demands. We have tentatively agreed to a collective bargaining agreement that we are extremely proud of.  Let us be clear, none of this would have happened without the campus community coming together in overwhelming numbers to demand justice for our profession, our students and our college.

Dear Students and Colleagues,

On Sunday we go back to the bargaining table in one last attempt to reach a deal before we strike.  We do this on the heels of receiving support from our tenured colleagues and students who have committed in overwhelming numbers to strike with us.  We are intrigued to see that just as we are about to strike, the administration is suddenly beginning to make more serious proposals to improve the lives of contingent faculty. We should note that every single item the administration has proposed we have had to fight for, tooth and nail. While this represents two years of hard volunteer work from contingent faculty, the college has spent hundreds of thousands of student tuition dollars trying to prevent us from winning what they put in their latest proposal.

The interest and creativity on our campus for designing custom 11oz mugs has been amazing.  We have placed two templates in WebCRD where you can add your design and send it off for printing on our dye-sublimation equipment.  As the semester winds down, consider creating a design to thank a roommate, professor, staff, family or friend.  $6.99 per mug. 

Log in to your WebCRD account and choose the IC Office Catalog> Center for Print Production Items>IC Inventory Items.  There are two options for the photo mugs.  A two sided design and a continuous design.  The dimensions the design needs to meet are listed.

We have samples to display at the graduation fair next week that will include bandannas for you and your favorite dog, flip flops, t-shirt, football key ring and a card caddy that you can attach to your cell phone.  All customizable by you!


Resources and how to guides can be found at

From Senior Vice President Nancy Pringle, Provost Linda Petrosino, and Professor Gwen Seaquist, representatives of the Ithaca College bargaining committee.

What is abundantly clear to the college’s bargaining team at this point in contingent faculty contract negotiations, is that all members of the campus community, regardless of where they stand on the many various issues, want both sides to resolve these negotiations so that everyone’s attention can be refocused back to the day-to-day commitment to the education of our students.
