Faculty members at Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) have said no to the school’s latest contract offer.

Faculty members have overwhelmingly rejected an offer that called for no raises this year and just a 2% pay raise next school year 2022-2023 and a $1,500 bonus not based on merit.

The union sent the school’s president 250 scathing comments from faculty members outraged at the offer.

One professor called the offer “professionally insulting and personally demoralizing”.

The comment went on to say, “The administration seemingly ignores market conditions and disrespects its faculty.”

Another professor called the offer a de-motivator while others said morale at the university is low and others said they’re looking for jobs at other schools.

FGCU responded with: “We are engaged in good-faith negotiations, but the university does not comment on active negotiations.”

Fall classes are slated to begin August 19.

Below is a link to comments made by faculty.
