Chapter Meeting this Friday near USF Tampa

The UFF USF Chapter will meet Friday Noon at CDB Restaurant at 5104 E. Fowler Ave., in Temple Terrace, just east of USF Tampa. We have two important items: selecting a committee to run the Chapter election in spring, and setting up a spring schedule. All UFF USF employees are invited to attend for salad, pizza, and drinks.

Happy Holidays!

We will resume next semester.

The Contracts Will Soon Be in the Mail

Hard copies of the 2016 - 2019 Collective Bargaining Agreement - the contract - will be going out in the holiday mail. They will be in 5.5 x 8.5 envelopes, and we are sending a copy to every UFF USF employee in the Bargaining Unit - members and non-members alike. If you don't receive yours by New Year's Day, contact us.

There is also a PDF file with the contract posted online at our website. Come visit us!

Congratulations to the Six Recipients of the UFF USF Travel Scholarships

This fall, the Chapter offered six $ 500 travel scholarships to UFF members; applicants were asked to submit brief descriptions of the professional purpose of the travel, and then the recipients were to be chosen by lot.

We received 36 applications - over 7 % of the UFF USF membership - and all the proposals submitted were for efforts that would advance the mission and profile of the university. Many clearly were from applicants who intended to undertake the travel at personal expense if UFF did not fund the trip (and for many proposals, $ 500 did not cover all expenses). Apparently, like school teachers who purchase supplies, we find ourselves making up the difference.

We are pleased to assist Kristin Allukian, Ilene Berson, Susan Havens, Mahuya Pal, Joan Perl, and Nancy White, although we regret that we had only six scholarships. Thanks to all UFF members for helping support colleagues and the university community!
