Duke Community

I am a student.  How can I support the Duke Faculty union?

We love working with Duke students and are honored to have received support from students. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to learn about opportunities for solidarity.

Student-1024x782I work at Duke as a staff member or tenure track faculty member.  How can I support the Duke Faculty Union?

Many of our events—including our summer film series and grading parties—are open to all Duke employees. Follow us on Facebook and twitter to learn more about opportunities for solidarity. We also welcome Duke employees to participate in our political campaigns and advocacy work. Email dukefacultyunion@gmail.com to join our non-member listserv.

What are my options if I’m a non-tenure track faculty member or graduate student who isn’t covered by the current bargaining agreement?

Currently, only non-regular rank faculty who teach in the Trinity College of Arts and Sciences, Graduate School, and Center for Documentary Studies are covered by the bargaining agreement. We are nevertheless interested in talking to all non-tenure track faculty about their ideas and experiences. If you would like to learn more about the possibilities created by organizing a union, please contact us at dukefacultyunion@gmail.com. If you’re a graduate student, you can join SEIU Southern Region, Local 27 (the Duke Graduate Student Union), our sister union on campus.
