Northwestern Non-tenure Eligible Faculty Union
Legally certified in May of 2017, the Northwestern University Non-Tenure Eligible (NTE)Faculty Union formed to address problems like low pay, arbitrary changes to course assignments, lack of office space, unclear status, and other issues that make it difficult for them to do their jobs in the classroom.
The NTE Faculty Union includes about 650 part-time and full-time adjuncts and faculty members at seven of Northwestern’s colleges and schools. The university has chosen to spend tuition money on union-busting lawyers rather than furthering the educational mission of the university.
“It’s crucial that we put public pressure on and convince the University to sit down with us,” Jackson Bartlett, Visiting Assistant Professor in Sociology at Northwestern University.
“As NU goes global, professors raise concerns of pay, gender equity among non-tenure language faculty”
“Union says Northwestern won’t bargain, is violating labor laws”
“ASG senators pass emergency legislation to support non-tenure eligible faculty union”
“Non-Tenure Eligible Faculty Union hold rally to demand negotiation”
Tell President Schapiro to Stop Violating Labor Law and Bargain with NTE Faculty.
