Articles 3 and 23 have been ratified by the faculty (with a vote of 149-1) and by UCF’s Board of Trustees! Bargaining for 2017-2018 is now complete and the new provisions in those two articles are in effect. The articles include:
- a 2.25% raise,
- an increase in the raise associated with promotion to full from 9% to 10%,
- a one-time payment of $1,500,
- an equity raise for eligible faculty bringing up their salaries to $42,000 – $60,000 depending on degree and contract length,
Note that bargaining for the next three-year, “full book” contract (2018-2021) starts soon. And while our union is powerful, we are even stronger when we increase our dues-paying membership. Please consider joining to ensure continued improvements to our contract.
