THE UNION ELECTION BEGINS NOVEMBER 25TH, viaa MAIL-IN BALLOT. This is an exciting development, bringing us a step closer to sitting together with the Goucher Administration to help improve Goucher College.
CREATE GOUCHER FACULTY UNION
Once the majority votes yes to form a union, then you'll elect a bargaining committee representing different departments on campus. The bargaining team will survey people to figure out what you'd like to see in a contract.
As far as what the process is here at Goucher, it's pretty simple--people are signing union cards which we then filed with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). An Election to vote for or against unionization will be held on NOVEMBER 25TH, 2014.
As contingent faculty one of the things we have to deal with is insecurity - constantly. And a union is a way to get some security in an increasingly insecure higher education environment.
