Our UFF-UCF Bargaining Team was back in session Tuesday morning, June 11, continuing negotiations on the contract topics of Benefits with the UCF Board of Trustees team. This was our 30th bargaining session for the current 2018-2021 contract. UFF-UCF’s John Fauth brought along baby daughter Stella to meet the team.

Today we discussed Article 24, Benefits, at length. We may tentatively approve (TA) this article at the next session. We also discussed the process for handling names and forms for Membership (Article 26, Payroll Deduction).
