PSUFA Economic Priorities Survey
There are approximately 800 adjunct faculty working on the campus of PSU. Because of the nature of our employment, we may have priorities that are different than those of our full-time colleagues. As the PSUFA bargaining team prepares for a crucial -- and hopefully final -- day of bargaining on May 6, we need to know what economic options are most important to you. Please take a few minutes to respond to this survey, which will be open for 1 week. Please submit only one response.
Let us know how we can best win for our part-time faculty at the negotiating table!
What kind of raises would you like to see in our next 2yr. contract cycle? (Give us a percentage increase for each year. E.g. 3%, 6%)

Thank you for your responses! If you want to further support our negotiations, please consider attending part of Bargaining Day as an observer. Indicate below which hour during the bargaining session on May 6th your could join other PSUFA members to support our negotiations. The presence of our members will send a message to the Administration that our adjunct faculty are many and we all deserve fair compensation.
If you plan to come to our Bargaining Day, please share your contact info with us only to allow us to coordinate attendance to this meeting. Thanks again.
