It’s official! We get to vote for SENS-UAW as our union on May 3rd and 4th, 2017.
We have huge, exciting news! The regional National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) just announced the dates for our election on unionization for May 3rd and 4th.
This quick legal victory means we can transition from organizing for our strike authorization vote to organizing for our union election. The foundation of strong union support for the strike authorization that was built over the last several weeks has resulted in an even deeper commitment to win our union vote. So good news and even better news – the strike authorization vote is off and the union election is on!
When the majority of us vote yes, The New School will have a legal obligation to bargain with us. Like student employees at more than 60 university campuses across the US, we will gain the ability to negotiate for and secure improvements in a binding contract.
The NLRB election will take place on Wednesday, May 3rd and Thursday May 4th, from 10am-4pm in the Lower Level of 6 e16th Street. Further details to follow.
