FREQUENtLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What will a union mean for the climate of professional communication on campus? What will it mean for me and you? How will contingent faculty becoming unionized affect the new president of the college and the soon-to-be new provost? What will contracts do for contingent faculty? How will having a union change faculty job security? What will this mean for health care benefits? Good question, all. It is up to us, collectively, as union members and those affected by the union, to work with the administraiton in order to determine these important outcomes.
Why not now? Change is coming to Goucher College anyway. The fiscal situation of the institution necessitates change. And change is coming to Highter Education across the country. Regarless of Goucher having a new president and whether or not current faculty governance committees meet and pose recommendations, the Goucher Faculty Union looks forward to working together.
