Tonight, I am quite pleased to announce that CTU passed the tentative health care agreement, 337 yes votes to 5 no votes!
A big thank you to all who took the time to vote and to all who worked this ratification including our bargaining team and office staff!
CTU’s Shopping List, lists several sources for stores and products that are union friendly and/or made locally, in Michigan or in the U.S. Our shopping list is a good resource for gift ideas during the holidays or throughout the year. It is always available on our website under “Tools.” Add products and stores to the list by sending them to Cheryl@ctumsu.org.
The university has hired a company, AllClear ID, to provide two years of identification protection and repair for over 400,000 current and former students and employees affected by MSU’s recent data breach. Identity repair will be available as needed. Credit monitoring will be available to affected students and staff who sign up for the service. The services are free to the individual.
The CTU encourages all current and former members who are affected by the breach — those employed between 1970 and November 13, 2016 — to take advantage of these services.
For background and additional information about accessing AllClear ID services, please see the message from MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon.
To sign up for credit monitoring, go to https://msu.allclearid.com.
Hard copies of the new MSU/CTU contract (April 1, 2015 – March 31, 2019) were distributed to CTs last week. Consider leaving your contract on your desk or some other location where visitors and coworkers can see it. It’s one more way of showing that CTU is in our workplaces.
You can also access the contract online at www.ctumsu.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/CTU2015-2019.pdf.
