ANNOUNCEMENTS

JOIN UFF TODAY!

Download, fill in, and mail the membership form. You must be a UFF member at the time of an incident (such as a reprimand, non-reappointment, layoff notice, or tenure/ promotion denial) for UFF to represent you in a grievance or future litigation. UFF CANNOT REPRESENT A NON-MEMBER IN A GRIEVANCE OR FUTURE LITIGATION. And if you join UFF by December 9, you will receive a $ 300 dues rebate in spring; it's never been easier to join the movement.

WHAT SHOULD UFF BRING TO THE ADMINISTRATION'S ATTENTION?

UFF and the USF System Administration have been strengthening our lines of communication, and one important line is the consultation, where representatives from both meet formally with an agenda and present major issues.

A consultation has been scheduled for Wednesday, November 30, and an agenda must be finalized by Wednesday November 23. If there are issues that you believe should be considered for the agenda, please download the UFF-USF System Chapter Consultation form and mail it to:
UFF USF System Chapter
30238 USF Holly Drive
USF Tampa, FL 33620
Or email it as an attachment to the address on the form.

Since the consultation agenda must be composed in November, we recommend that suggestions, recommendations, and ideas be sent in this month. Thank you for your input.
