USU-NEA’s statement regarding new UVM President Dr. E. Thomas Sullivan.
BURLINGTON – University Staff Union-NEA today is happy to officially welcome E. Thomas Sullivan as the next University of Vermont president.
“We welcome Dr. Sullivan and look forward to working with him as we, together, make this a university that we can all be proud of,” said Michele Patenaude, a member of USU-NEA’s leadership team who works at the Bailey Howe Library on campus. “We, like everyone on campus, are glad to be looking forward to a great new future.”
Patenaude said the union – which has filed for an election to be the union for unrepresented staff – can’t help but notice the president’s ability to negotiate his salary, benefits, health insurance, retirement and working conditions.
