How Your Union Negotiates
Bargaining for the 2018-2021 contract is now happening. Full minutes and audio of bargaining sessions are on UCF’s Collective Bargaining website.
Bargaining for our UCF Contracts
The 2015-2018 contract is in effect. However Article 30.1(c) of the contract says that some articles — “Articles 3, 23, and any other articles mutually agreed to by the parties” — can be re-bargained for the 2017-2018 academic year. Bargaining on those articles started in March 2017 and ended in January 2018. You can read the new articles here.
You can find the old bargaining proposals for the overall 2015-2018 contract here. Bargaining for all the articles was completed in November 2015, and the ratification vote was in December 2015.
Your bargaining team is made up of faculty here at UCF just like you — not lawyers! Please give them your support and your input.
A tentative 2018-2021 collective bargaining agreement between the BOT and the UFF-UCF has been achieved:
