The University's final offer in collective bargaining negotiations was 2.9 percent in 2009-10 and 2.5 percent in 2010-11; the university made no offer to increase life insurance coverage. A special master award granted UNO faculty members 3.8 percent salary increases for each of the next two years as well as a life insurance benefit with a face value equal to the base salary of the AAUP member, not to exceed $120,000. The university estimated the potential cost of the new insurance benefit at $2 million. The appeal will be filed with the Commission of Industrial Relations.
