Administrative Historical Note

The Eastern Michigan University Federation of Teachers (EMU-FT) is a labor union on campus advocating for the faculty's rights within the University. The EMU-FT campaigned to be elected by the general faculty starting in the early 1970's against the American Association of University Professors (AAUP). They currently represent the University's lecturers.

Scope and Contents note

The Federation of Teachers records contains material associated with the Eastern Michigan University Federation of Teachers (EMU-FT) from 1969-2011. Though the records cover a wide range of topics, the bulk of the records were created during campaign periods for the EMU-FT. Mainly these records were created from 1971-1975 as the organization shared campaign issues, position papers, notices of events, open correspondences in favor of EMU-FT, invitations to join EMU-FT, and legal delays pertaining to the election itself. Most of the records are memorandum released from EMU-FT.

The Federation of Teachers records pertain, but are not limited to, tenure positions, women's rights, salary, and academic facilities and resources. The EMU-FT sought to protect the rights of the faculty by being elected by them, and created records regarding those actions. Materials in this collection are arranged alphabetically.
