President’s Report.

New Business.

  • Required Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Training. Discussion.
  • Florida Education Association. There seem to be two motions for the Assembly regarding gun violence, and there is a concern that they might be duplicative.
    • Motion made and seconded that

      Whereas the USF Chapter of the UFF presented a motion to the UFF Senate to be presented to the FEA DEA regarding federal support for developing the science of gun violence and

      Whereas the UFF Senate did approve this motion as presented and subsequently the requisite twenty-five signatures for this motion as presented were collected, and

      Whereas another motion has been made regarding legislation encouraging the use of armed volunteers on schools,

      Be it resolved that the Chapter regards these motions as not duplicative and different in many aspects and therefore the Chapter urges that these two motions be presented to the FEA DA separately.

      Motion passed.


  • Membership. We will seek a table at the USFSP Benefits fair. We will set up meetings and socials.
  • Government Relations. Discussion.
  • Collective Bargaining. We will compose a bargaining survey.
  • Grievances. There are a lot of outstanding grievances.
  • Tenure and Promotion. There will be a workshop on November 30.

These minutes respectfully submitted by G. McColm on 3 October 2018.
