Negotiations: Article 4, Affirmative Action

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 4

Affirmative Action

4.1 The University declares its determination to actively recruit, retain and promote women, minorities, protected veterans, and people with disabilities.

4.2 The University will consult with the Faculty Senate or a committee designated by the Faculty Senate before revising Affirmative Action policies that affect Bargaining Unit Faculty. If the Senate does not supply such consultation, then the University will consult with the AAUP-WSU.

4.3 A copy of the University’s Equal Educational and Employment Opportunity Policies and Affirmative Action Plan will be maintained on the University’s Web site.

4.4 A copy of the Fall Staff Survey, submitted to the Equal Opportunity Commission, shall be made available to the AAUP-WSU upon its request.

Our negotiating team noted the presence of the term "Bargaining Unit Faculty" in section 4.2 with a reminder that the actual terminology to be used will depend upon the choices of language and acronyms the parties eventually settle on in section 2.4 of Article 2.
