MD School for the Deaf faculty and staff overwhelmingly OK union

Education professionals at the Maryland School for the Deaf have resoundingly chosen to unionize; faculty and staff voted 159-2 to join AFT. "I'm so happy to have collective bargaining here at the school," said Nicole Goldberg, a teacher at the school. "I feel like we can now have our voices seen and heard and as faculty and staff we can also be a part of our school's decisions." AFT-Maryland called the vote "historic" that "empowers education professionals at the school to negotiate pay, benefits, and working conditions at the school, rights that education professionals and state workers respectively already have in Maryland." AFT-Maryland is a state federation of public employee unions from a wide range of sectors including K-12 education, healthcare, corrections, as well as state and local government employees.

The vote [link removed] overwhelmingly favored unionization -- out of 3,335 NLRB-registered voters, 2,053 voted yes and 67 voted no, resulting in a 97% majority and 64% [link removed] turnout rate.

"All graduate students feel the overwork to some degree," said Kory Gaines, a second-year doctoral student in the Political Science department and an organizer for TRU-UE. "We ought to be compensated for being the workforce of the university." [link removed] Read more here.

"We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face... we must do that which we think we cannot."
