All faculties are encouraged to participate in our first round of negotiations on March 26 from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. at 150 Pugh Hall. The dedification of these waivers has two objectives. First, many of these exceptions are inherently wrong. But waivers are just as important for valuable bargains. Several of these exceptions relate to activities that the UF administration deems necessary, including the ability to set discretionary salary adjustments for directors. By threatening to pull it out, the faculty union gains useful leverage. Below is a brief report on the negotiating team`s objectives, the progress and outcome of the negotiations, as well as the next steps for both the UFF-UF and the larger negotiating unit. The UNF administration will conduct a new negotiation agreement with AFSCME on Tuesday, August 18, 2020 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. The meeting is via Zoom. For more information, please contact Daniel Nicolas at the firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Tuesday, March 26, the united Faculty of Florida (University of Florida Chapter) negotiating team met with representatives of the UF Board of Directors to begin negotiations on a new collective agreement. The current three-year contract expires on December 31, 2019. In April 2019, our negotiating team proposed a complete review of Article 21 of the current collective agreement. This article deals with family, medical and parental leave. Our team has proposed a number of improvements to the current CBA. Your team has not yet reacted to most of them and has not yet put many proposals on the table. That is why we expect the negotiations to continue until spring 2020. On the other hand, the UFF negotiating team wants the UFF`s right to automatically deduct voluntary contributions from members to be maintained until the end of the new CBA, regardless of the vagaries of national or federal law. Such an approach is consistent with recognized legal principles that make new laws or regulations cannot retroactively follow the provisions of a collective agreement without writing. As you know, your UFF-UF negotiating team is negotiating a new collective agreement (CBA) with representatives of the UF Foundation Board (BOT). To date, it has secured a number of significant benefits, made progress on long-term goals and identified some significant threats.
The team asks negotiators to conduct a 5-minute survey available: www.surveymonkey.com/r/SV5TYPY This agreement has been ratified by the negotiating unit and the foundation board. It was in effect on October 1, 2019. Their UFF-UF negotiating team is currently negotiating the terms of the 2020-2022 collective agreement with the UF (BOT) Board of Directors negotiating team. Any member of the bargaining unit (UFF member or not) has the option of approving or rejecting the agreements signed for the new collective agreement in a ratification election. The sub-signed and proposed articles are available through the following links: Some of the amendments proposed by the BOT are indeed modest changes to the CBA. In addition to updating academic terminology and correcting stray typos, the BOT team proposed a welcome language that outlines the university`s commitment to recruiting faculties from historically marginalized groups [amendment proposed to Article 12.1 A)].
