As a faculty member, you are automatically included in the Collective Bargaining Unit (CBU) represented by UNH Lecturers United – AAUP (American Association of University Professors).
Over 80% of our Collective Bargaining Unit has chosen membership, and we believe that the strength of our union is in our membership. We encourage you to join us in the work of our collective union.
As a member, you will be able to:
• Vote on the Collective Bargaining Agreement • Participate in the contract negotiation process • Vote for union leadership officers or be a candidate for leadership office • Have a real influence on decisions that affect your work life • Play an important role in shaping the future of teaching and academic freedom
A vibrant membership provides a strong foundation for effective and sustainable contract negotiations, now and into the future.
Through UNH Lecturers United- AAUP membership, we can support our colleagues who might need the benefits of union membership.
As members, we do our part to support the infrastructure of the union: office space, clerical needs, legal fees, etc
As members, we can work towards transparency, equity and inclusion in our work environment.
As members, we can support each other when things go wrong via a robust grievance process.
As members, we can achieve more TOGETHER, through our joint efforts as members, than each of us would on our own.
