Message from UFF President Rebecca Marcon
Bargaining from 10am-4pm this Friday, January 12.
UNF Library, Suite 2400
Happy New Year and welcome back as we begin a new semester. We’re pleased to be getting back to the bargaining table this Friday.
You can find all proposals (along with list of changes and rationale) put forth by the faculty team on the United Faculty of Florida website http://unf-uff.org/uff-unf-cba-proposals/. Draft proposals received so far from the administration team are also posted on this site. We have been promised a complete set of Board of Trustees (BOT) proposals this Friday and look forward to earnest and productive negotiations in this new year.
Please join us this Friday. Faculty presence makes a big difference. Come whenever you are able to and stay for as long as you are able to.
UFF-UNF Endorses Statement of Unity
The UNF Chapter of the United Faculty of Florida affirms our commitment to the values and ideas expressed in the UNF Statement of Unity, which was passed as a resolution of the UNF Faculty Association on March 2, 2017
UNF Statement of Unity
UNF stands in unity and solidarity with all members of our community, regardless of race, gender, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, disability, or country of origin. We are proud of the diversity in our students, faculty and staff.
We strongly condemn acts of hate and bigotry as antithetical to the university’s core values of mutual respect and civility. Actions and words that seek to deny human beings full membership in the broader moral community on the basis of arbitrary characteristics are intolerable. We stand opposed to violence in language or in action, and we see these as a threat to the mission of UNF as a public university that is committed to intellectual and cultural growth and civic awareness.
We pledge to stand with and for those who are the most vulnerable members of our community and to take actions that help our students and fellow employees feel safe and know that they are safe. We affirm UNF’s unreserved commitment to student success within a diverse, supportive campus culture. We seek to embody the ideals of a free and democratic society, and we fully support and value each member of our community.
Your UNF-UFF Chapter
The UNF chapter of the United Faculty of Florida represents all UNF tenure-line faculty, Instructors & Lecturers, and Visiting Professors on all labor-related contract negotiations (roughly 600 full-time faculty). With the exception of faculty currently holding administrative posts and adjuncts, all UNF faculty are considered “in unit” and are covered under the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) negotiated by our chapter and university administration. Only active members of the union, however, receive additional union-related benefits (including union representation in the grievance/arbitration processes). Join Here
