NAHJNU Secretary Natalie Escobar’s story on faculty unionization at Northwestern

Natalie wrote an enterprise story on the ongoing division among Northwestern non-tenure eligible faculty about a unionization vote that took place in June 2016. The link to the story is here.

“A battle over unionization has been playing out since the end of last school year, almost entirely out of sight from the student body. The debates have taken place behind closed doors, over email and even in a faculty-members-only Facebook group for discussing the vote. Faculty members have been reluctant to go on record or even be interviewed, saying that speaking out openly about the vote would not be in their best interest. Some even said they feared retaliation from their colleagues or possibly jeopardizing their job security.”
