Thank you to the Bargaining Unit Members who came out and voted for our Spring 2019 referendum. All three conditions passed and will be implemented this coming Fall, during the 2019/2020 academic year, including the dues increase in 2019 from $125 to $150 for full Bargaining Unit Members. 

On the April 12th payroll, per the agreement in the RAFO contract, all bargaining unit members who are teaching in the Spring 2019 term will receive a one-time bonus of 2%. Roosevelt University will be notifying bargaining unit members through RU email this week. 

Finally, if you have a desire to become more involved in serving the union on either governance or the front table bargaining team, please contact me over the next two weeks at This email address is being protected from spambots.

The RAFO Executive Committee encourages full members to engage in representing their college by serving on one of these governance committees. 

In solidarity, 

Jen Wilson, President
