Another tentative agreement reached with Northern faculty


MARQUETTE, MI— The following is a joint statement from Northern Michigan University administration and the NMU faculty union:

"The AAUP and NMU administration reached a tentative agreement Friday (10-01-2021) on the AAUP faculty contract. Agreement was reached on the few outstanding items that contributed to the recent failed ratification vote.

“‘While you always wish you could do more for the faculty, we have a much better chance of ratification with this proposal. I greatly appreciate the efforts of our Chief Negotiator Lesley Putman and members of the administration that helped secure this agreement,’ said NMU-AAUP President, Dwight Brady.

“‘We are very pleased both sides were able to work collaboratively to reach agreement,’ said Interim President Kerri Schuiling. The faculty will need to ratify the agreement, with final approval coming from the NMU Board of Trustees.”
