Stand With Chicago Faculty Seeking to Unionize
We, the undersigned students, faculty, and community members stand in solidarity with the non-tenure-track faculty who teach at private non-profit colleges and universities in the Chicagoland area. Our solidarity reflects a growing awareness that there is a dire need to improve working conditions and raise educational standards. It is our belief that this can only be achieved by forming a union.
We, the undersigned, support the right of contingent faculty to form their union. We ask that these administrations remain neutral and not use student tuition funds or other college resources to oppose the unionization effort, and we pledge to speak out against any intimidation or retaliation that may be a result of contingent faculty invoking their right to organize. Let non-tenure track faculty know you have their backs: sign the petition to show your support for contingent faculty as they form their union.
