A coalition to expand membership and participation in our Pratt faculty Union. Our mission is to bring about a more just, transparent, and equitable Institute.

WHO WE ARE

Pratt United Faculty Front (PUFF) is a group of engaged faculty and union delegates composed of visiting instructors, adjuncts, and full-timers. We are working towards a more robust and inclusive Union that welcomes all faculty and prioritizes clear communication among Union leadership and members.


WHAT WE STAND FOR

  1. A strong, inclusive, and transparent Union in tune with faculty concerns and working to counter inequities.

  2. Equal pay for equal work including more equitable pay for part-time faculty and fairly compensated service work for all faculty.

  3. The Union as a force for justice, with the understanding that justice must be intersectional and include considerations of socio-economic class, gender, race, ethnicity, age, ability, and the environment.

  4. Financial transparency for all faculty, staff, and administration.

  5. Protecting and expanding retirement and healthcare benefits.


UPCOMING ELECTION

We are supporting a united slate of candidates for the upcoming Union leadership election. Cast your e-ballot vote between January 30th and March 1st. Click below to learn more about the PUFF slate.

OPEN LETTER

We shared this open letter to the administration calling for a fair contract. Hundreds of Pratt faculty have signed. The fact that current Union leadership doesn’t embrace this organizing work by Union members speaks to the disjunction between leadership and the large group of faculty who share this vision.


JOIN THE UNION

We can only create the Pratt we’d like to see by joining together as a Union. Your Union membership also gives you the right to vote in our leadership election and on our next contract.

  • Membership forms should be available on the Union office door (North Hall, Room 125). For your records, document your signed forms with a photo and keep one of the carbon copies

  • Trouble accessing forms? Write to puff@puff1460.com and we'll help you out.

  • Not sure if you’re a member? You still need to fill out membership forms unless you have been receiving emails from UFCT1460@gmail.com and ufct1460election2019@gmail.com about the upcoming election.
