Support Macalester College Adjunct Faculty

Macalester College Administration

We call on the the administration to commit to a position of neutrality and non-interference towards contingent faculty as they seek to hold a free and fair election to form a union. The contingent faculty at Macalester College are joining in a movement that has brought concrete gains, from pay raises to basic job security provisions, to contingent faculty across the country who have formed unions. Contingents at George Washington University, Tufts, Georgetown, Montgomery College, Lesley University, Whittier College, and American University have found that in standing together, their collective voice has helped to improve both their working conditions and their student learning conditions.

We, the undersigned, support the right of contingent faculty at Macalester College to form their union. We ask that the administration remain neutral and not use student tuition funds or other college resources to oppose the unionization effort, and we pledge to speak out against any intimidation or retaliation that may be a result of contingent faculty invoking their right to organize.
