The United Faculty of Florida - Lake-Sumter State College Chapter represents Professors, Librarians, Lecturers, Instructors, and Program Managers at LSSC.
As we reach a major sticking point in contract negotiations, the attached letter was sent to the DBOT to ensure they understand our position and the ultimate meaning of theirs.
We have officially passed the 3-year mark in negotiating our first contract. It has not been smooth with roadblocks set by the administration whenever possible (slow to respond, termination of team members, cancelled meetings, etc.). We will continue to represent our faculty in bringing this process to a successful close.
Chapter President - Jeremy Norton
Vice President - Dr. Peter Olen
Treasurer - Dr. Michele Rudden
Secretary - Brandy Ziesemer
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.
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.
From our first bargaining session, April 2019
It has now been nearly three years since we began the process to negotiate our first contract with the administration. This video explains what we hoped to accomplish - nothing has changed in our goals.
