Description
This collection documents the activities of the University of San Francisco Faculty Association (USFFA), also known as the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) Local 4269. The bulk of the material consists of grievances filed by USFFA, especially in regards to the denial of tenure, faculty hiring and firing, salaries, and working conditions. Other records consist of arbitration proceedings, contract negotiations, and correspondence between USFFA and its members, and USFFA and the University of San Francisco (USF) administration. Also includes Executive Board meeting minutes and administrative and financial documents generated in the day-to-day running of the union, as well as reference materials on collective bargaining and reports on accreditation.

The founding president was economics professor Michael Lehmann (1975-1988).
