EMU Federation of Teachers Local 9102

Welcome to the EMU Federation of Teachers website!  EMUFT is a union of all part-time and full-time lecturers at Eastern Michigan University. As a union of individuals, EMUFT engages a collaborative model of participation: together we are stronger!

Fall Membership Meetings

Fall General Membership Meetings are coming up soon. It is important for all members to come to one of the meetings to discuss general EMUFT issues, and talk about our role as a union, especially with the upcoming election season.

Watch for dates and times and plan to come and help make EMU a better place for all lecturers!

Fall Social!

Please join us for food, drink, and collegiality at the EMUFT Social on September 18th from 5 - 8 at the Corner Brewery.

This is a great way to meet folks from across campus and to talk to other lecturers in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Fall Evaluation and Promotion workshops

EMUFT is offering Evaluation and Promotion Workshops again this fall for both part-time and full-time lecturers.  The workshops aim to get everyone up to speed on changes to the evaluation/promotion sections of last year's new contracts, so we are all empowered with that information and do not miss any opportunities.  The workshops last one hour and will be led by members of the bargaining teams.

The dates/times and locations are:

Monday, Sept 8th at 6:30 p.m. in 145 Science Complex
Thursday, Sept 11th at 3:45 p.m. in 306 Pray-Harrold
Friday, Sept 12th at 11 a.m. in the College of Business room 472, which is the Dean's Conference Room

AFT President Randi Weingarten appeared on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" television show to make the case for teachers' due process rights, to correct widely held misconceptions about the teaching workforce, and to clarify that problems tied to evaluation are often mislabeled as due process issues.
