ACT-UAW (UAW Local 7902) represents over 4,000 part-time and adjunct teachers. It consists of two units: one for teachers at NYU, and another for those at The New School. It was founded in 2002 after several years of organizing efforts, and elected its first Executive Officers in 2005.
Who is ACT-UAW?
If you teach at NYU or The New School and are a union member, you are ACT-UAW. Your local is staffed by faculty, and governed by your fellow union faculty members. Day-to-day operational and policy decisions are made by two bodies of elected members: the Joint Council and the Executive Committee. The Executive Committee reports to the Joint Council, which in turn reports to you and to your fellow union members.
