Negotiations: Article 35, Separability

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 35


35.1 Should any portion of this Agreement be found by a duly constituted authority to be in conflict with any applicable law, then such conflicting portion of this Agreement shall be rendered null and void and the applicable law shall be controlling. In such an event, upon request of either party, the parties shall meet. If replacement language is necessary as a substitute for the invalidated provision(s), the parties shall negotiate such replacement language.

35.2 The invalidation of any portions of this Agreement in accordance with this Article shall not affect the legality and enforceability of the remainder of this Agreement.
