WHY SHOULD MIAMI UNIVERSITY FACULTY AND LIBRARIANS UNIONIZE?
Individually, faculty and librarians have little control over our working lives, but together, we have the power to create a better Miami. A union is an association that protects the rights and interests of its members. As a union, you and your colleagues would have the legal right to negotiate with the university on terms and conditions of your employment—including benefits, terms of appointment, shared governance, salaries, and anything else the membership has voted to prioritize. Your faculty union can negotiate binding agreements that support shared governance, academic freedom, and economic security at an especially uncertain time at Miami (and for universities in general).
We are the Faculty Alliance of Miami
Through teaching, research, and community involvement, we generate the knowledge and dialogue that a democratic society requires from a public research university. Every day, across ranks and campuses, Miami’s teacher-scholars foster student success and academic excellence. As a faculty, we resolve to organize a union to protect this mission and the public good it has created.
