Going to the NLRB

SENS-UAW Files Petition with the NLRB

As you all know, last weeks ago we announced majority support for SENS-UAW with a delegation of of us delivering a letter to the university for a fair and expedient process for recognition of our union. We’re disappointed the university has yet to respond, but we’re still open to meeting with the administration and discussing how together we can make a stronger and more democratic university.

20141217_nlrb_fbpostIn the meantime, we have now filed a petition with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) seeking certification of SENS-UAW as our union. If the university continues to ignore our request, we hope the NLRB will affirm our legal right to collective bargaining and ensure a process where the administration is required to respect our choice on unionization.

As soon as we have new information about next steps in the NLRB process, we will let you know. You are also welcome to become more involved in the process by joining our weekly meetings or organizing more in your department.
