“I’m voting yes for a union because of my students. Our students chose Skidmore in part because they wanted to work closely with their professors, but the college’s current reliance on repeated short-term contracts is standing in the way of building those relationships. Students deserve faculty with job security, who aren’t constantly worried about whether or not they’ll be rehired next year. Joining SEIU will allow NTT faculty at Skidmore to negotiate for more secure positions – positions that offer us more security, and that offer our students a more stable, consistent learning environment.”
