Union Leaf-letting at Inauguration of Andrew Hamilton as NYU’s 16th President

A large group of our ACT-UAW Local 7902 members came out on a gorgeous Sunday morning to hand out hundreds of flyers at the inauguration of Andrew Hamilton as NYU’s 16th president. Leaflets were distributed to guests of the inauguration at the Skirball Center for the Performing Arts. Our Union is currently in negotiations with the University on a third Collective Bargaining Agreement. While we have made several proposals to improve our working lives at NYU, the University is stalling in its response to most of our proposals, or citing some as “administratively challenging” to them.
