The United Faculty of Florida - Lake-Sumter State College Chapter represents Professors, Librarians, Lecturers, Instructors, and Program Managers at LSSC.
Impasse was declared on the Discipline and Discharge article at the bargaining session on October 11. This attached letter explains our position. We will pursue our rights on this matter through the next step - an outside special magistrate.
The college and bargaining team reached a deal on nearly everything in the contract. The MOU includes all tentative agreements reached so far, which is everything except our deadlocked Discipline and Discharge article. This agreement was later ratified by the union and the District Board of Trustees.

The faculty voted overwhelmingly to unionize in October 2018 with a vote of 62-6. Since April 2019, the unit has been negotiating our first Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) with the administration - it is nearly complete.
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.
