Every year, the union sponsors a luncheon for the newly hired faculty. Several guests, such as the Provost and the President of the Faculty Senate, address the new faculty, welcoming them to the University. Other speakers typically include the President of the Union, the Membership chair and a long standing Union member. (photos)

The new faculty have the opportunity to experience the community that the Union presents, while learning about the benefits of Union membership. The new faculty also learn about the successes of the Union in maintaining collegial governance.

Chapter Meetings

spring chapter meeting

Chapter Meetings, which occur at least once in the fall and once in the spring, are the most important meetings of the UFF, for it is here that the Chapter democratically sets its goals and policy for the upcoming period. In addition, it is at the spring Chapter Meeting that Officers and Senators are elected for terms beginning the following academic year.

The Chapter hears reports from the Executive Committee (Officers plus Senators), the Bargaining Team, the Grievance Team, etc., and decides policy for the upcoming period which the various committees and teams will then help carry out. (photos)
