AAFMCC BARGAINING UPDATE
Last year, with your help, AFT Higher Education was able to have over 3,000 contingent academic workers participate in our 2019 Contingent Faculty Survey, providing us with an in-depth snapshot of their work and personal experiences.
The responses, summarized in our recent report, An Army of Temps, paint a disturbing picture of how our system of higher education is failing the majority of the workforce who provide that education.
We believe that on its own, this report provides a compelling case for reforming our system of public higher education. However, the intervening months have found us in an unprecedented global health crisis, the consequences of which we are only beginning to understand but which will likely underscore the need for reform. To better understand how the global pandemic and associated disruptions are affecting contingent faculty, we have decided to put our Contingent Faculty Survey back into the field for 2020.
Please take a few minutes to complete this important survey so that we can understand your current work and personal life experiences against the backdrop of uncertainty brought about by the coronavirus.
