We the faculty are deeply disappointed in the ways the administration has conducted itself at the bargaining table with the unions representing workers at this university. These failures have resulted in direct protest: an academic student worker strike, a graduate student advisor wildcat strike, and an occupation of the cafeteria this semester.
We call on the administration to repair the harm that has been done to the New School community by committing to the following:
1. Meet the remaining demands of cafeteria workers and their allies: requests for workplace democracy and stable employment and benefits in an environment free of harassment.
2. Reverse the cuts to the student advisors' healthcare and maintenance of status fee waivers.
3. Return to the bargaining table with SENS-UAW with an economic proposal that would allow student employees to meet their basic human needs for healthcare and livable wage.
