The University of Alaska Federation of Teachers was chartered in 1973 and is a union representing faculty at each of the 14 campus locations in the University of Alaska Statewide System of Higher Education. The union deals with benefits, contracts, salary, and workload issues, and ensures that faculty have an active voice in University Governance. A written constitution and bylaws govern UAFT. We are a democratic institution governed by our membership. The Union is administered by the UAFT Executive Board which includes: Elected statewide officers (President, 1st & 2nd Vice-presidents, Secretary-Treasurer) Union representation means that the UAFT negotiates and administers a contract known as a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) that sets forth university faculty salary, health and other benefits, hours, and working conditions. The CBA is a negotiated agreement between the University of Alaska Board of Regents and the UAFT. The current agreement is effective July 1, 2010, through December 31, 2010. The contract is applied by the University of Alaska, and UAFT is the exclusive bargaining agent with the University representing faculty on all work related issues through meetings with the department of labor relations for the University and through informal discussions with Deans and Directors. Without a contract, it is possible for faculty to be fired without cause, have salary or hours changed without consent, be assigned work outside of already heavy responsibilities, and for salary inequities to increase. Even with a contract all of these things have happened in the past few years, but UAFT has been successful in correcting errors while protecting Faculty Members so that we can continue to carry out the mission of the university through service to our students and our communities. UAFT is a highly effective union but it depends on each member to participate. It is through a strong unified voice that management is convinced to follow the contract and that legislators are convinced to fund our contract.
