Bargaining Success

The Bargaining Team negotiated a second MOU (in addition to our lab contact hour win) on compensation for next year. The increase for our unit members is substantial: about 16% on average. While we could not solve all of the compression issues uncovered, this progress helps us all to continue our work as educators.

Vote certification


The faculty voted overwhelmingly to unionize in October 2018 with a vote of 62-6. We began negotiating our first contract in April 2019, finishing that round with an expansive MOU in August 2022 which is now in force. 

UFF-LSSC represents our faculty members in matters of compensation and working environment. Our goal is a fair and equitable collegiate workplace. We seek to advocate for the talented faculty of Lake-Sumter State College in making the best learning environment for our students. 

Our Goals for Bargaining

It has now been nearly four years since we began the process to negotiate our first contract with the administration. We got a major deal completed, but our purpose remains the same moving forward. A new round of negotiation began in fall 2023 with a goal to complete the CBA by the end of spring 2024.
