Negotiations: Article 22, Outside Employment

Wright State University Chapter

American Association of University Professors

AAUP-WSU has proposed the article below for inclusion in the first collective bargaining agreement (CBA) for non-tenure-eligible (NTE) faculty. Our negotiating team handed it to the administration at the initial negotiating session on March 11, 2013. Reports about the status of this article will be found below the article itself.

See our CBA Negotiations page for a roster of the AAUP-WSU negotiating team, brief reports about each Monday's negotiation session, and an article-by-article summary table with links to detailed information about each individual article that either the administration or AAUP-WSU proposes to include in the CBA.

Article 22

Outside Employment

22.1 “Outside Employment” refers to professional activities of NTE Bargaining Unit Faculty Members that fall outside of the normally defined workload of teaching, research, and service and that may involve external compensation. It does not apply to professional activities that reflect normal and expected public service for which compensation is limited to reimbursement of costs or nominal honoraria such as invited lectures, peer review panels, or activities explicitly included in approved practice plans. “Outside Employment” does apply to all other professional work and to teaching for institutions other than Wright State, including distance learning.

22.2 An NTE Bargaining Unit Faculty Member’s outside employment must not interfere with his or her assigned duties, must contribute to the Member’s professional development, and must not occupy, on average, more than one day per week.

22.3 NTE Bargaining Unit Faculty Members must submit a written request to their Dean and then receive written approval from their Dean prior to beginning outside employment.

22.4 When engaging in outside employment, NTE Bargaining Unit Faculty Members may not make more than incidental use of University facilities and other resources unless the University is appropriately compensated.

22.5 NTE Bargaining Unit Faculty Members should make every effort to avoid any conflict or appearance of conflict between outside employment activities and University responsibilities, and to avoid accepting outside assignments that compete directly with academic functions of Wright State University.

22.6 NTE Bargaining Unit Faculty Members are personally responsible for any damages or claims for damages which may arise in connection with their outside employment.

Status of Negotiations about the Above Article

April 22, 2013

The parties' Chief Negotiators initialed initialed -- "TA'd" -- this article, thus signifying tentative agreement on this article. Here is a pdf file showing the TA'd article.

April 1, 2013

The administration submitted a counterproposal in which it removed the "NTE" designation (as is appropriate in light of terminology to be adopted in Article 2 (Recognition)) and thus reverted to language found in the current CBA for tenure-eligible and tenured (TET) faculty.

March 18, 2013

Our team simply reported that we had inserted "NTE" as needed into the corresponding article from the current CBA for tenure-eligible and tenured (TET) faculty, and the administration acknowledged.
