EMU Federation of Teachers Local 9102


EMUFT is local 9102 of the American Federation of Teachers. We are over 100 full-time lecturers and library staff, over 600 part-time lecturers, and together we are half of the teaching faculty at Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, Michigan. EMUFT is a member-driven organization. As members of EMUFT we can improve the conditions for teaching at EMU and create better educational spaces for our students. The more who are involved, the more we can do to improve teaching and learning.

Bargaining Updates August 2016

EMUFT has been bargaining the Full Time Lecturers contract with EMU administration. The FTL contract is important to all lecturers because we are one unit and support one another even though we have a separate contract for PTLs. And a strong FTL contract will help us get a strong PTL contract. Here's what happened so far in August.
