Our Act Now Team is about being informed, flexible, and proactive to obtain positive outcomes for our members. Currently, we are impact bargaining two memorandum of understanding statements: the first addresses COVID19 and the economic crisis and the second addresses the Hostile Work Culture at UCF. We began impact bargaining these two MoUs on June 30, 2020.
Our Act Now Team is committed to maintaining the productive and efficient operation of the University in a safe and healthy environment. Since COVID’s outbreak in February, the UFF bargaining chair requested the general counsel to be fully transparent in its communication about our response to COVID. We have used Zoom, emails, phone and webinars to stay in touch with our members and state, national, and community partners. Given that our Team is hard at work, we are not always on social media, but please feel free to check in with us!
Our first agreement, MoU COVID with the UCF Board of Trustees, was tentatively agreed upon on April 30, 2020 and ratified on May 29, 2020 by 98% of our bargaining unit voters. In addition to this MoU, our team's request in the first proposal dated April 6, 2020, "Current parking permits that were purchased for one full year for the 2019-2020 academic year shall be extended through December 31, 2020," was recently accepted by the administration.
