Earlier this year, our union was alerted to apparent changed practices by the University: denial of faculty terminal sabbatical leaves or leaves taken immediately prior to retirement. We have sought to have this matter addressed and informally resolved with the University. Due to the University’s failure to meaningfully engage and/or take steps to effectively address the matter, we have filed a formal grievance.

While we are attempting to address this issue through our current bargaining process, we hope this grievance may provide a faster resolution, which is critical for those considering the timing of your retirement. Email email@example.com if you have any questions and/or have information that may be helpful.
