Faculty Contract

The UCF Faculty Contract

UCF faculty who are in the bargaining unit have certain rights, protections, privileges, and obligations enshrined in our Collective Bargaining Agreement. 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.

Current Contract:  2015-2018

The 2015-2018 Contract is in effect! It was ratified by the BOT on November 19, 2015, and ratified by the bargaining-unit faculty (by a vote of 210-2) on December 8, 2015. Note that in 2016 we bargained Articles 3, 8, 23, and 24. Small timing changes in Article 30 were also agreed to. Changes to those articles were ratified by the faculty and by the BOT in November 2016. And in 2017/2018, we bargained Articles 3 and 23 again. Changes to these articles were ratified by the faculty and by the BOT in January 2018.

You can take a look at the current version (in .pdf or word format) of the contract — with all the aforementioned changes.

Hmmm. Have a voice, respect, recognition, and an avenue for an ongoing discussion about one's own working conditions, OR play a video game? Really?!!

Today's bargaining session, the 28th of the current contract negotiations, ended with a few significant gains. The BOT and UFF-UCF tentatively accepted Article 17 of our contracts, which preserves our current parental leave for instructional and non-instructional faculty. Parental leave for non-instructional faculty members will be lengthened from 13 weeks to 16 weeks. Read more about it here!
