Collective Bargaining

Your Collective Bargaining Agreement

The most important obligation of our union is to negotiate a Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) between UFF-FSU and the University. The CBA covers things like:

  • tenure
  • evaluation procedures
  • leaves (sabbaticals, professional development, & paid parental leave)
  • job security
  • disciplinary procedures
  • fairness in assignment of responsibilities
  • intellectual property rights
  • academic freedom
  • procedures for filing a grievance if you feel that any of these rights have been violated.

The entire CBA for FSU faculty is renegotiated every three years, but select articles are opened every year. Bargaining begins in March; we send out a survey to gauge the priorities of our members in the months leading up to this.

The FSU School faculty have a separate contract that is negotiated on a different schedule; the most recent CBA for the FSU School is the 2014-2017 contract.

You can access a complete archive of all CBAs, for both faculties, here.
