On Saturday, Nov. 19, UW Faculty Forward held our founding Membership Convention at UW-Tacoma.
Faculty union members heard a keynote address from Sumanth Gopinath, Associate Professor of Music Theory at the University of Minnesota, and a faculty leader of their union organizing effort at UMN. They also discussed issues and action items to be addressed in the coming months, and began the nominations process to elect the members of the Steering Committee that will lead our chapter over the next year.
One urgent item to emerge from this Convention was a joint statement with the AAUP-UW on the results of the Presidential election. Please read our joint statement, and prepare to join us in actions and protests over the coming months as we respond to the already-visible after effects of this divisive and unprecedented election campaign.
Members, please also keep an eye on your inbox for information, coming soon, about faculty union voting for our Steering Committee members. Please participate and add your voice to your newly established faculty union chapter at UW.
