Collective Bargaining

Our goal is to promote an environment where our employees do not believe it is necessary to have a union represent them over wages, hours, and terms and conditions of their employment. If employees elect to have a union represent them, we strive to bargain in good faith with the union and to promote an environment of harmonious labor-management relations. At the same time, we recognize that the University must operate efficiently and productively to further the University's mission of providing higher education to the people of Florida.
