Job security for non-tenured faculty: The university has offered non-tenure-track faculty longer contracts and a specified role in department governance. PERS pick-up: The university and the union reached an agreement regarding the 6% PERS "pickup" should state law change. Subsidized health care: 95% of the cost of health insurance premiums will be paid by the university for the employee and all dependents.
