I support the CFAC, Columbia Faculty Union (P-fac) bargaining committee's fight to protect our collective bargaining rights and our seniority; and to secure fair compensation, as well as commitments to authentic diversity initiatives and to compensated professional development.
I don't want to lose even one day of work, nor do I want my students to miss even one day of instruction. So, I urge the Columbia College administration to pursue good-faith negotiations with CFAC (P-fac). Honor your promise to value adjunct faculty. Stop trying to replace CFAC (P-fac) members with non-unionized faculty. Maintain quality curriculum and the value of Columbia degrees. If no fair contract is offered in November 2018, I will support CFAC (P-Fac) efforts to secure a dignified work environment and quality education.
