Welcome to Fordham Faculty United (FFU)
Here are two things you can do right now to get involved:
- Sign our Open Letter to the Fordham University Community drafted by our adjunct and full-time FFU colleagues by clicking here. Let our university community know that you want to improve working conditions for everyone at Fordham — our working conditions are our students’ learning conditions!
- Complete the FFU Bargaining Survey by clicking here. Your priorities for improving things at Fordham will guide our union contract negotiations this Spring!
Our union includes the vast majority of part-time and full-time non-tenure-track and non-tenured faculty at Fordham University across most schools (A&S, PCS, GSE, GSSS, GSRRE, Gabelli). FFU faculty are: adjuncts, lecturers, clinical professors, and post-docs. If you are newly hired at Fordham in any of these roles and are a part of our Bargaining Unit, you can sign up to join FFU by filling out the membership form.
You can find our Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) here, which details our rights and benefits. FFU is part of SEIU Local 200 United. Get involved in your union and meet your colleagues by clicking here.
