Temple and Temple Association of University Professionals, or TAUP, have come to a tentative agreement on a two-year contract with adjunct faculty after a year of negotiations.
As the first agreement since adjunct faculty became part of the union, it offers adjuncts credit-hour increases for each of the two years. $1,425 per credit hour in 2017-18 and $1,500 for 2018-19. Those already paid more than $1,425 but less than $1,500 per credit hour will get a single payment of $150.
The full-time faculty agreement will be extended for one year through October 2019. It gives full-time faculty the same level increases as the last two years.
On Wednesday, the union had a ratification meeting with its executive committee. A ratification vote by the membership is expected within the next month.
