Welcome into the 2014-2015 academic year! 

For new employees, do not forget that you are protected by the New College collective bargaining agreement (CBA), however, if there is a grievance and you seek representation from the union, you must have been a member when the grievance occurredUFF will not provide grievance representation to faculty who were not dues-paying UFF members at the time when the grievable incident occurred.

Membership offers many other benefits (see Membership Benefits link), among them liability insurance, information about legislators' proposals, lobbying for the interests of university faculty and for public education, special rates in various services, etc. At the local level, your membership gives you the NCUFF magical cup: offering free tea or coffee at the Four Winds cafe. If you are still having doubts, consider we offer a new member rebate of $200. 00. 

All are welcome to our chapter meetings. Third Wednesdays of September, October, February, and April. This where you will hear what are the current concerns, share your thoughts of how your union should proceed, and tell us of your concerns so we can address them.
