As NYU contract faculty, we are coming together to bargain collectively with New York University and build our political voice as educators and researchers whose work sustains this institution. We are joining the thousands of academic workers at Columbia and The New School who are seeking to secure a better future through collective bargaining, and we are part of a growing movement in private institutions like Barnard, BU, Tufts, and Fordham, where unionized contract faculty have negotiated meaningful improvements to salary, benefits, and working conditions.
Without collective bargaining, we have experienced stagnant salaries, increasing workloads, vanishing benefits, threats to job security, and a lack of transparency in administrative policies. If our benefits and working conditions are secured in a collective bargaining agreement, NYU cannot change the terms of our employment without our consent. As employees across NYU, we have formed a union in order to improve our working conditions and to make the university a more equitable and accessible institution for teaching, research, and learning.
HEAR FROM A FEW OF US ON WHY WE ARE FORMING OUR UNION
Abortion rights are human rights.
We ❤️ workplace democracy! With a union, we all get the chance to vote for the bargaining committee who represents us at the table, and then again to ratify the negotiated contract. #1u
