We have a Facebook page!  Check out United Faculty of Florida at USF.  It is public (so anyone - students, colleagues, the provost - and read it) and all UFF members are eligible to join the group that posts items on it.  The page serves as a forum for UFF members to share issues and interests.  Check it out!

Information: I would like to remain on the UFF USF Senate, because I believe that in today’s political climate here in Florida learning about bargaining and becoming an astute bargainer is very important to help preserve shared governance and protect faculty benefits and rights. I am further very interested in finding out more about filing and winning grievances. Finally, learning about successful lobbying of legislators is of paramount importance, especially in a state where so many politicians fail to understand that it takes competitive salaries and benefits to attract and retain high-quality faculty. But I am also motivated to remain on the Senate because USF Administration has been treating—according to my personal belief—faculty members very poorly. Faculty at USFSP, for example, recently experienced the firing of their fourth campus leader. Some female faculty have seen their rights and dignities violated and are denied fair hearings and complaint processes. All this has to change, and I am willing to do my share.
