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:
