Contract Faculty United-UAW Working Conditions Survey 

Five years ago, contract faculty at NYU began organizing a union to bring about the working conditions that signal not just the university's reliance on us as teachers, scholars, and administrators, but its respect for us as professionals. Despite the challenges of the pandemic and a dispersed faculty, a majority of us have signed up in support of our union, Contract Faculty United - UAW. We are part of a huge wave of academic workers across all professions organizing unions right now, including full-time non-tenure track faculty at Barnard College who set citywide standards in their new union contract

To keep moving forward, however, and ultimately win recognition, we need to continue expanding, not just as a body of supporters, but as an active community and network across campus. 

Our union—your union—needs your participation! Our union depends on the active contribution of a large, diverse group of faculty. The survey below highlights some simple but important ways you can help our organizing effort move ahead. As we enter a new academic year, please take a few minutes to share your perspective about your status and your recent work experience. More importantly, highlight how you can contribute.
