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.
Founded in 1975, the University of San Francisco Faculty Association, a local of the California Federation of Teachers, represents
members from the colleges of Arts and Sciences, Education, Nursing, the School of Business and Management and the Gleeson
Library. The founding president was economics professor Michael Lehmann (1975-1988). The USFFA represents its members in all
matters concerning wages, workload, and benefits, and is responsible for negotiating and enforcing a collective bargaining
agreement with the University of San Francisco administration.
