How Your Union Negotiates

Bargaining for our UCF Contracts

Your union’s bargaining team (made up of professors just like you) negotiated this contract with the UCF Administration and Board of Trustees. It is important to emphasize that since it is a mutual agreement, both the UFF leadership and the UCF leadership agree about the contract’s language.

Bargaining is almost always ongoing. Full minutes and audio of bargaining sessions are on UCF’s Collective Bargaining website.

The 2018-2021 Contract is in effect! It was ratified by the BOT in 2019, after dozens of weeks of negotiations by out Bargaining Team. It is out first multi-year contract. You can take a look at the current version in PDF – HTML is being added very soon:
