Welcome to the EMU Federation of Teachers website! EMUFT is a union of all part-time and full-time lecturers at Eastern Michigan University.
In December 2013, EMU issued layoff notices to 10 of the 11 Full-Time Lecturers in the College of Education.
In February 2014, EMUFT began a petition drive to save those jobs. Find information about these actions at:

In less than two years, 500,000 teachers, parents and others have used Share My Lesson, posting, downloading and rating classroom lessons and other teaching materials—making it the most sought-after, free online collection of lesson plans and other instructional resources.
The AFT, in partnership with the Albert Shanker Institute and the AFT Innovation Fund, is accepting applications for the second annual $25,000 Prize for Solution-Driven Unionism, which honors the most innovative, inspiring examples of collaborative work by our state and local affiliates.
The Union Council, made up of the elected officers of the union, will be meeting on April 25th from 10 -12 in room 221 Pray Harrold.
The Agenda for this meeting is as follows:
