Reappointment After Six Years of Consecutive Employment

  1. Scope

    These guidelines set forth procedures for reappointment after the bargaining unit member has completed six consecutive years of employment and two Full Performance Reviews.

     

  2. Reappointment Timetable

    Absent written notification prior to October 1 that the appointment is not to be renewed for the next academic year, the bargaining unit member's appointment for the next academic year within the three-year term shall be regarded as renewed. Upon completion of a three-year term of annually renewable appointments beginning in year seven of continuous employment, a bargaining unit member becomes eligible for consideration for another three-year term of annually renewable appointments based upon successful completion of a performance review as outlined in the FT-NTT CBA, continuing programmatic and/or staffing needs within the unit, and budgetary resources sufficient to support the position.

     

  3. Contents of Notification of Non-Reappointment

    Any notification that the appointment is not to be renewed for the next academic year shall set forth the basis for failure to reappoint, which may be the absence of one or more of the following: continuing satisfactory job performance; continuing programmatic and/ or staffing needs within the unit; or anticipated budgeted resources sufficient to support the position for another year.

  4. Reconsideration of Non-Reappointment

    The bargaining unit member may request that any notice of non-reappointment be reviewed by the College Advisory Committee. The request for review must be filed with the College Advisory Committee, with a copy to the Dean, by the bargaining unit member within 30 days of receipt of the notice of non-reappointment.
