We Have a Major Deal!

The college and bargaining team reached a deal on nearly everything in the contract. The MOU includes all tentative agreements reached so far, which is everything except our deadlocked Discipline and Discharge article. This agreement was later ratified by the union and the District Board of Trustees.

Vote certification


The faculty voted overwhelmingly to unionize in October 2018 with a vote of 62-6. Since April 2019, the unit has been negotiating our first Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) with the administration - it is nearly complete. 

UFF-LSSC represents our faculty members in matters of compensation and working environment. Our goal is a fair and equitable collegiate workplace. We seek to advocate for the talented faculty of Lake-Sumter State College in making the best learning environment for our students.
