FILING A COMPLAINT OR GRIEVANCE:
A complaint is an allegation "involving substantive academic judgments in matters of workload, reappointment, promotion, tenure, and post-tenure review" (CBA 27.2.2).
A grievance is an allegation of "a violation of a specific section of [the Collective Bargaining] Agreement" (CBA 27.2.1).
Filing a formal complaint or grievance with UFC is the proper way to challenge an academic judgment or a violation of the CBA. Only UFC can file a formal complaint or grievance. Individual faculty members may not do so.
How to file a complaint or grievance:
Fill out the form on this page (or on the home page; they are identical). Give your name and contact information, and a brief description of your issue.
Please be as specific as possible about your allegation. In particular, for a grievance, please identify which article and section of the CBA that you believe has been violated.
