IMPACT BARGAINING AND THE CONTRACT
In the previous Biweekly, we announced that we were in "impact bargaining" concerning effects of the pandemic. On Friday, May 15, representatives of the United Faculty of Florida (representing you) and representatives of the USF Administration (representing the USF Board of Trustees) tentatively agreed to a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) concerning a number of issues that have arisen in the past two months. The MOU must be ratified in order to come into force and that means it must be approved by both the employees of the UFF USF Bargaining Unit and by the USF Board of Trustees. If ratified, the MOU becomes part of the contract. You will be contacted in May and June with information about ratifying the MOU.
