Grievance Team

The UFCT grievance team works on behalf of all faculty (regardless of whether they are union members) who can substantiate that their contractual rights have been violated by the Pratt administration. The UFCT grievance team is the only entity that can negotiate with Pratt’s administration to resolve grievances; when necessary the grievance team can also bring grievances to arbitration.

Current Grievance Team:

  • Ric Brown, UFCT 1460 Negotiating Team member; Associate Professor (FT, tenured) of Social Sciences & Cultural Studies
  • Kye Carbone, UFCT 1460 President; Adjunct Professor (w/ CCE) of Foundation Arts
  • Gerson Sparer, Professor (FT, tenured) of Mathematics
