IF YOU NEED HELP:

Your contract (the Collective Bargaining Agreement) provides you with many rights and protections. Your Department Chair, Dean, or other administrator may not know what your rights are, and they are under no obligation to fully explain your rights to you. Your Union, the United Faculty of Florida, is always ready to talk with you about your rights and the protections offered to you and will try to answer any questions you may have.

REMEMBER: YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

The UFF contract enforcement chair is always glad to answer questions and provide advice to members of the UCF-UFF bargaining unit, which includes faculty, librarians, counselors, physicians, and others. UFF also provides grievance representation to its members. Here is the UFF’s official policy if you were not a dues-paying union-member at the time a violation of your rights occurred.
