Statement from Council Member Mark Levine on Neutrality Agreement Reached Between Barnard Contingent Faculty UAW Local 2110 and the Barnard College Administration

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 20, 2015

CONTACT: Tyrone Stevens 917-842-5748tstevens@council.nyc.gov

“I congratulate Barnard Contingent Faculty UAW Local 2110 and the Barnard College Administration for reaching a neutrality agreement that will allow the contingent faculty to decide whether or not to form a union. The administration is doing the right thing by refraining from any actions that would influence the free choice of the contingent faculty. Unions continue to play a pivotal role in promoting dignity, decent wages and a fair shake for working people in all parts of our economy. And UAW Local 2110 has consistently been a strong voice for its workers as well as a leader in promoting women in leadership positions. I applaud their steadfast efforts to secure a vote on unionization and I commend President Spar for making clear that the contingent faculty can exercise their right without pressure from anyone at the college.”
