The Board of Governors has reposted its proposed draft of a regulation regarding Post-Tenure Faculty Review, with a comment period extended to December 9: to submit a comment, go to the Proposed Regulations page, scroll down to Chapter 10, and submit your comment. Here is the article on this proposed regulation in the previous Biweekly. Hopefully, this means that the governors are particularly interested in what the public thinks of this regulation, and we would like the Board of Governors to hear from you.Meanwhile, the UFF petition on post tenure review is still running. Feel free to share the petition with friends, family, neighbors, etc. The United Faculty of Florida (UFF) are asking you—our local, statewide, national, and international allies—to help defend tenure and academic freedom from attacks on the working, teaching, and learning conditions of Florida’s higher education community. Right now, the Florida Board of Governors is considering a regulation that will virtually eliminate tenure in the state’s university system. One of the ways you can support our fight is by signing this petition and sharing it widely among your family, friends, colleagues, and community allies. UFF will present this petition and the full list of signatures directly to the Board of Governors as part of our ongoing collective actions to stop this regulation in its tracks. Please sign and stand in solidarity with us today!
Meanwhile, the business of bargaining and enforce a contract continues, so the USF Chapter of the United Faculty of Florida is seeking information about working conditions here at USF.
Your faculty union needs hard data on working conditions for all faculty and professionals - both union members and non-members; this data is critical for bargaining and enforcing the contract. If you have already taken this survey, thank you. If not, please take it now; it takes only fifteen minutes, and your help is greatly appreciated.
We created one survey for each of the colleges, so please scroll down and click on the link designated for your college.
Your UFF USF Team.
