Posed to: Rebecca Marcon, UFF President
The Union seems to have made it their business to interject themselves into every piece of substantive legislation coming out of the Faculty Association. What is their goal? If it is the protection of faculty rights, they should understand that objecting to the results of faculty deliberation coming out of the work of the Faculty Association’s committees sends precisely the opposite message.
Answered from the floor by Rebecca Marcon, UFF President
Great question. Whoever asked that, thank you. I think one of the very, very best ways to possibly ever protect faculty rights is through the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the CBA, and it is not our purpose to interject, to try to be adversarial, but rather to protect, and the CBA allows us to do that.
