In accordance with the UA-UNM CBA, Article 13, and the subsequent MOU signed on November 2, 2021, a conforming workload policy from every unit in the College is required by January 21, 2022. Your unit’s new policy will be used to describe workloads starting in the Fall semester of 2022.
The College provides a sample policy outline intended to assist your unit to draft, discuss, and approve a conforming workload policy.
While the policies are being established, please continue to use the current Faculty Workload Form to report faculty workloads to the College. It is currently understood that this requirement from previous practice will only apply to the calendar year 2021 and should be submitted during the Spring semester, 2022.
Include all faculty with appointments in your unit. Units with faculty holding joint appointments are expected to include the workload performed for that unit only. Programs with affiliated faculty only are not required to submit a workload form.
At present we are uncertain if the CBA established workload policies will supplant the previous annual requirement for workload reporting to the College. Once we have a decision on this, it will be reported here.
Please direct any questions regarding CBA compliant workload policies to Senior Associate Dean Philip Ganderton.
