FUSA has settled the impasse with administration while also finalizing the 2022-2025 contract! This was a colossal effort that required the persistent work of the FUSA bargaining team with input from the entire FUSA Council and support from FUSA membership. There couldn’t be a better illustration of solidarity! We simply wouldn’t have gotten it done without our strength in numbers. More detail will be forthcoming, but here are some highlights from what FUSA President Sherry Sipple notes as “the largest wage increase we have had in over 15 years”:

  1. 12.8% increase across the board to the faculty step pay system, to be implemented in full by August 2023-2024.
  2. An initial pay adjustment of $1,570 to the 2022-2023 salary schedule, to be paid to eligible faculty in June 2023.
  3. 2023-2024 step increase for eligible full-time faculty. 
  4. A second 2023-2024 step increase to replace the lost step from 2021-2022, for eligible faculty.
  5. An increase in lab/simulation/workshop point values from 8 to 9 points per contact hour in 2023-2024; an increase to all lab/simulation/clinical/workshop point values to 10 points in 2024-2025.


The conversion to eDues in response to SB 256 being signed into law is continuing. If you haven’t signed up for eDues, don’t hesitate. If there was ever a good reason to support your union it is right now. While legislators are trying to silence our collective voice FUSA has come through for its members. Let’s show the legislature we aren’t going anywhere by getting all of members converted by July 1st.

See our eDues page for more information. FUSA will be reaching out to the remaining members who haven’t completed the transition. If you aren’t a member yet, it’s easy to JOIN NOW. Submit your online enrollment form today. For more reasons why joining FUSA is the smart move for faculty, see our Membership page.
