Update on TAUP negotiations



To the Temple University Community:


The collective bargaining agreement between Temple University and TAUP (The Temple Association of University Professionals) runs through tonight at midnight. The parties continue to work toward establishing a new agreement. If the current collective bargaining agreement expires, faculty will continue to work under the terms of the existing agreement. 


Although there have been several agreed-upon items, there remain many proposals under consideration including those pertaining to pay and benefits. 


We are confident that negotiators for the university and TAUP will continue to work in the spirit of cooperation, with a focus on reaching a fair agreement while always keeping our students’ best interests as a top priority.


We will continue to keep you informed.
