Legislative Liaison Report – Janet Owen
United Faculty of Florida – Henry Thomas
UFF is focused on legislative activity and is supporting our K-12 colleagues. The legislative session is moving incredibly fast this year so anyone interested in contacting the legislature should do so quickly. UFF thinks more cuts are in store for us. Higher education budgets in Florida has been cut about 22% over the last few years, higher than any other state. There were 28 legislative bills to reduce pension benefits for faculty and retirees.
UFF will hold elections for the Sabbatical Selection Committee, the P&T Committee and Professional Development Committee next Wednesday and Thursday.
