Constitution Revision: Spring Semester 2016

The Executive Committee has revised the CSU-AAUP constitution, and members will be voting on it later this semester.  A link to the revised version is here as a PDF file.
The first CSU-AAUP constitution was a product of the establishment of collective bargaining  at Cleveland State in the early 1990’s. Since then, it has been amended a number of times, but this is the first thorough revision. Most of the changes are “housekeeping”, that is, changing obsolete wording (such as references to quarters rather than semesters), and incorporating amendments into the body of the text.
The one substantive revision is a change in dues structure in response to a change by the national AAUP.  Untenured faculty, who pay five-tenths (5/10) of one (1) percent of base salary in their first four years, will shift to the rate of eight-tenths (8/10) of one (1) percent of base salary in their fifth year of service. Until now, untenured faculty paid the lower rate until receiving tenure.  Note that this is not an increase in dues per se, but a change in timing for the increase to the full percentage.
