NYU Engineering Adjuncts Vote to Join Union

December 22, 2015

Adjunct professors at New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering, formerly known as Brooklyn Polytechnic University, voted to join an existing NYU adjunct union affiliated with the United Auto Workers, they announced Monday. The election adds 240 new members to the union, which in a separate unit also includes adjuncts from The New School. UAW represents the NYU graduate student union, as well. Some 89 percent of adjuncts who participated in the engineering faculty election voted in favor of the bid. John Beckman, an NYU spokesperson, said via email that the university will, “of course, honor the outcome of today's vote. We will be sitting down with the union in the near future to work towards an agreement.”
