Town Hall on Friday, November 20 at 5 pm

Can I grieve tenure and annual evaluation decisions?

This Town Hall will focus on how the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) can be used to identify and grieve problems that might occur during your annual evaluation and/or Promotion & Tenure decisions. During our discussion we will emphasize the relevant articles in the CBA. We will make sure that you understand these articles and how to apply them. We will also emphasize the need to properly document grievable events and to make sure that you do not miss deadlines.

This Town Hall will be conducted over Zoom. For a Zoom invitation, contact the Chapter Secretary.

HOLIDAY SEASON TOY DRIVE

Every year, the West Central Florida Federation of Labor conducts a toy drive for the Children's Home Society of Florida. The pandemic precludes collecting toys this year, but there are still children having a lonely holiday season, so the Federation of Labor is conducting a Holiday Gift Card Toy Drive this year. To donate a gift card, go to the Toy Drive Site. And Happy Holidays! (And safely!)

USF United Support Fund for Food Pantries

Many of our students are struggling during this crisis, and the USF Foundation is supporting the USF Food Pantries to help out. They are accepting non-perishable donations, but one can also make monetary donations for the pantries at St. Petersburg, Sarasota / Manatee, and Tampa.
