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. 

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.
