Welcome to Fordham Faculty United (FFU)
CBA Bargaining Is Happening Now! Our next session is on July 13, 10am-5pm, and July 14, 12:30-5pm (see Updates below). These sessions are open to all FFU members. Join us in our fight for a fairer union contract for all FFU faculty!
FFU Mission statement: Guided by the belief that Fordham faculty’s working conditions are our students’ learning conditions, Fordham Faculty United, our union of contingent faculty at Fordham University, works to attain social justice, dignity, and well-being for contingent faculty and all members of Fordham University community by addressing inequities in participation in university decision-making, wages, benefits, job security, inclusion, and rights.
