COVID-19 Workload and Instructional Support Survey#2
This survey is a follow up to our first survey in Spring 2020 on workload and instruction support reimbursement. Please complete this survey even if you responded to our survey in Spring.

If you feel that you have performed work in addition to your assignment due to the move to online courses, or if you have unreimbursed expenses for necessary instructional resources due to the move to online teaching, please complete this brief questionnaire.

UC-AFT has filed a union grievance (not individual) on every campus in order to preserve our members' rights to compensation for additional work and reimbursement for expenses resulting from COVID related online teaching. We have also filed an unfair labor practice charge for the University's refusal to follow their legal obligations with respect to the contract. Our hope is that resolution of the grievance and ULP will lead to a process where individuals can submit claims for compensation and reimbursement.

UC-AFT will not submit a claim within this grievance on your behalf without your consent. Responding to the questionnaire will not be considered consent to submit a claim on your behalf. Our hope is to establish a process under which individuals can submit claims or to reach agreement on a per lecturer per course allocation.
