The USF Chapter of the United Faculty of Florida is surveying faculty concerns and attitudes about job conditions at USF with respect to the Covid-19 pandemic. We ask all USF employees in the UFF USF Bargaining Unit - UFF members and non-members alike - to participate. It is an anonymous survey with 13 questions. To take the survey, click here.
Thank you, and have a happy - and safe - Labor Day!
The USF Chapter of the United Faculty of Florida will meet next week Friday at noon on Zoom. This is the second chapter meeting of Autumn; chapter meetings (and other important events) are posted on the Events Calendar. Any employee in the Bargaining Unit may attend, but you must have an invitation: contact the Chapter Secretary. Come and check us out.
The next regular broadcast of this newsletter will be on September 10. Meanwhile, past issues are archived on the newsletter page while the front page of our website has links to resources for teaching online and links to sources on Covid-19, as well as issues on consolidation and tenure and promotion. Come and visit us.
