In The News

 

What is the Election?

In January, the Service Employees International Union Local 284 filed a petition to represent approximately 1,800 Twin Cities faculty (referred to in law as Unit 8). Shortly after filing the petition, SEIU petitioned to add 10 Professional & Administrative job classifications that have teaching responsibilities (which are currently part of Unit 11) to Unit 8.

SEIU’s request is currently before the Minnesota Bureau of Mediation Services, which oversees such matters. Once the question of who will be included in the faculty vote is settled, an election will be set. We expect the election to occur in fall 2016 or later.

The University Respects Your Right to Vote

The University recognizes – and fully supports – the right of every employee to vote on the issue of union representation. We respect all points of view. A majority of those who vote will determine the outcome for all in the bargaining unit. We hope you will take time to consider all points of view on this issue and we encourage you to vote.
