The UMass Faculty Federation, Local 1895, American Federation of Teachers, AFL-CIO was chartered in 1968. The founding date for UMass Dartmouth's predecessor institutions was chosen as the Local number. Our first contract, negotiated in 1970, was one of the first collective bargaining agreements for Universities in the U.S. The Faculty Federation represents full time and part time faculty, librarians, and professional staff in two bargaining units: the Faculty Unit and the Educational Services Unit (ESU)
