We, the majority of contract faculty at NYU, urge the administration to recognize our democratic choice and publicly commit to:
- respect our right to collective bargaining by agreeing to a fair and neutral process to verify our majority support
- Ensure real due process for contract faculty at NYU, including a guaranteed right to grieve termination to a fair and impartial third party.
- Establish meaningful annual raises that match or exceed the rate of inflation.
Contract faculty do much of the work upon which NYU’s reputation rides: in service, research, and especially teaching. In demanding collective bargaining, we join tens of thousands of people across the country, in higher education and elsewhere, who are organizing to secure the security, respect, and compensation they deserve.
NYU must do better and agree to a fair and neutral process.
