United Academics A A U P / A F T: The Faculty Union at the University of Vermont protecting academic quality  

What's New?

Administrative Pay in the Media

Skyrocketing administrative compensation at UVM is a recurring topic in local and even national news media. UA has assembled an archive of media coverage over recent years, demonstrating intense public scrutiny and concern over this issue—and the fact that our Board and Administration have yet to learn that corporate-style executive pay is not a Vermont value.

  • Visit the Bargaining Reports page for the latest negotiation updates.
  • Sign up to observe the next bargaining session, Wednesday, April 16. Our negotiating team's arguments mean little without demonstrated faculty solidarity!

Higher Education Lobby Day

Members of UA were present in Montpelier for the lobby effort organized by AFT, UA's other parent union. The event was covered in the Times Argus.

Statement of Bargaining Principles

The Bargaining Team wrote a statement (member login required) explaining what is at stake in bargaining. Observers at bargaining sessions are essential to demonstrate faculty support—without which we have no leverage. Sign up here to observe the next session, Monday, March 24 at 2 pm in Rowell 107.
