In our December meeting, the AGSP voted to draft a statement regarding the ongoing discussion of the collective bargaining of contingent faculty at Loyola. The current state of that draft is as follows:
“The Association of Graduate Students in Philosophy affirms the right of contingent faculty at LUC to collectively bargain under representation of SEIU.”
Any comments or suggested emendations may be forwarded to Jean Clifford at firstname.lastname@example.org or Katherine Brichachek at email@example.com. The comment period will end this Sunday, the 17th.
