Watch Bargaining Live HERE
Bargaining Progress Report
Your faculty bargaining team is working hard to protect the interests of faculty, students, and UNF.
To learn more about how the contract negotiations are going, click HERE
The Florida House of Representatives passed a bill on January 25, 2018, that is a serious threat to our collective bargaining agreement and our voice for public higher education. Our contract provides many benefits and protections we value and need as faculty. It is a legally binding agreement that the Board of Trustees and UNF administration must adhere to. Without it, rules can be rewritten overnight unilaterally without faculty input or advisement.

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
