LMU NTT Faculty: See Our Letters of Support from Union Faculty, Elected Officials, and Community Leaders!

Loyola Marymount University (LMU) non-tenure track (NTT) faculty: We’re proud to have support for our union campaign from elected officials, community leaders, and unionized NTT faculty across the country!

Our supporters know that we need a change.

As part of a nationwide trend, LMU has reduced tenure-track positions in favor of contingent, non-tenure track teaching appointments that offer no job security, much lower wages, and limited opportunities for advancement. These conditions affect student learning by limiting our ability to provide quality instruction and mentorship to our students, and they hold us back from becoming fully acknowledged and included members of the campus community. Only with a union can we build the power we need to gain the rights and protections we deserve.

That’s why NTT faculty at LMU are urging YES votes in our vote-by-mail union election!

Though they represent only a fraction of our support, we’re glad to share the amazing letters below from some of our allies!
