True or False? There is no reason for the administration to hire more full-time tenure track faculty because they can hire as many part-timers as they like.
False. Arts. 10.8.1 and 10.8.2 make it clear that the University cannot hire unlimited numbers of part-time faculty. The Contract guarantees that the University cannot have more than 20% of its load credits taught by part-time faculty. This is designed to encourage the administration to hire more faculty in full-time positions to meet staffing needs.
