UST Faculty Union ratifies new CBA

Faculty salaries to go up by 3% to 19%

THE UNIVERSITY administration and the 1,600-strong UST Faculty Union (USTFU) finally signed a new, five-year collective bargaining agreement (CBA) last March 10, with both sides agreeing to a “compromise” to avert a strike.

The deal came less than a month after USTFU declared a deadlock in negotiations over teaching loads, faculty qualifications and promotion, which became the basis for the filing of a notice of strike before the National Conciliation and Mediation Board last Feb. 27.  read more »

Reinforced Tigresses fall short vs NU

DESPITE heavy reinforcement, the UST Golden Tigresses succumbed to defending champion National University (NU), 19-25, 22-25, 25-18, 26-24, 15-10, in their nail-biting Shakey's V-League match at The Arena in San Juan last Mar. 30.

UST, which acquired former setter Rhea Dimaculangan and reigning UAAP girls’ Most Valuable Player Ennajie Laure as guest players, dropped their season-opener while the Lady Bulldogs improved to a 2-0 win-loss record in Pool B.

Other teams in the same bracket with the Tigresses are Ateneo de Davao University, Far Eastern University and NCAA teams San Sebastian College-Recolletos and University of Perpetual Help System-DALTA. read more »
