Message from UFF President Rebecca Marcon
Many of you may be wondering about the status of salary increases mentioned by President Delaney on several occasions, including at Faculty Association on September 7, where he indicated that the administration was planning to offer faculty a 2% raise. Discussions about salary are formally handled in the context of contract negotiations. However, no formal salary proposal was presented to the UFF-UNF faculty team during the first bargaining session held on September 1, and no additional sessions have been scheduled as of yet. We are eager to get back to the bargaining table and move forward with negotiations on behalf of faculty.

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
