The bargaining teams for UFF-USF and the Board of Trustees met this afternoon. Before the meeting, the chief negotiator for the BOT team let UFF-USF know that they were waiting until the BOT approved the 2008-09 budget before presenting proposals on the salaries and benefits articles. The UFF-USF chief negotiator presented the chapter’s third proposal on salaries. (Since June 2007, the BOT team has not presented any counter-proposal on salary.) UFF-USF also presented a proposal on one of the technical articles (on amendment and duration).
There was discussion but no concrete language proposed on several other topics.
