After months of hearings, countless ill-considered statements from administrators, and thousands of conversations among contingent faculty and union activists, members of United Academics of Philadelphia are in the final days of their union recognition campaign to join the Temple Association of University Professionals and gain collective bargaining for contingent faculty at Temple University. Ballots are set to be counted by the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board in Harrisburg next Wednesday, November 25.
Activists have been documenting the campaign on social media this entire time, so why not take a few moments to follow them through the last days of this phase of the campaign and send them a message of solidarity?
In the meantime, if you are a contingent faculty union supporter at Temple and you haven’t done so already – SEND IN YOUR BALLOT TODAY! We’ll look forward to toasting your success next Wednesday!
