Policy on Representation of Non-members
UFF will not provide grievance representation to faculty who were not dues-paying UFF members at the time when the grievable incident occurred. You must also maintain your membership throughout the grievance/arbitration process.
All faculty have the right to file an individual grievance, but those who were not UFF members when the incident occurred must represent themselves or retain an attorney. UFF retains the sole and exclusive right to invoke arbitration; non-members will not automatically have the right to pursue a remedy beyond the grievance process. Additional information about the representation policy is on the membership form, located on the document downloads page.
