Bargaining

How Your Union Negotiates

Bargaining for our UCF Contracts

Your union’s bargaining team is made up of professors just like you, not lawyers. They negotiated this contract with the UCF Administration and Board of Trustees (BOT). 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. Your bargaining team needs your support and input in this process.

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

2018-2021 Collective Bargaining Agreement (Contract)

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. Read the PDF of our current Contract.

Our Bargaining Committee Chair is Yovanna Pineda, Ph.D., Associate Professor of History, College of Arts & Humanities. You may reach her at yovannaypineda@gmail.com.
