Our Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) is the only legally binding protection for faculty rights and working conditions at UF. It cannot be altered by unilateral action of administration or the state legislature. Only a legally binding union contract protects academic freedom, intellectual property rights, due process, tenure, continuing contracts, fair evaluations, the right to grievances with binding arbitration, and assignment dispute resolution, substantial salary increases for promotions, paid leave, sabbaticals, and other benefits. The right to tenure, for instance, is guaranteed by our CBA, not by Florida or Federal law—or university regulations.
Your membership matters. The higher our membership the stronger we are in securing faculty rights and working conditions. High membership rates are particularly important in bargaining for salary, raises, and sabbaticals.
If you would like to discuss faculty concerns, including health insurance and benefit changes as well as legislative issues, UFF leaders would be happy to come to your department to talk with colleagues. UFF can provide lunch or coffee as well as give an update and answer questions. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
The membership campaign is continuing with office visits and informal conversations with non-members. Click here to sign up.
