Faculty supporting the #BLM campaign
Please come to our Spring Membership Meeting, Monday April 18, 3:30 to 4:30 pm in Room 2925.
We are meeting with a short but important agenda:
- Nominations will be taken to serve as next year’s representatives on the union’s Executive Board—as well as nominees for delegates to the Martin Luther King County Labor Council (MLKLC) and for the AFT National Convention.
- Kira Wennstrom, our lead negotiator, will provide you with an update about our bargaining process and we will explain how you can help support our bargaining team through participation in issue focus groups.
- Additional announcements and updates—like a save-the-date for an upcoming thank-you reception for our associate faculty, plus a few other items.

In a speech at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., AFT President Randi Weingarten juxtaposed two approaches for education that would have vastly different consequences for America's students. Either build on the bipartisan consensus of the Every Student Succeeds Act to provide all families with access to great neighborhood public schools, or promote the dangerous, destructive approaches that Donald Trump's education secretary nominee advocates to undermine and privatize public education.
"Professor Watchlist" by Turning Point USA was founded to "identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of fiscal responsibility, free markets, and limited government." This blacklist allows students to submit names of professors who do or say things that are presumably opposed to conservative principles. Upon hearing that two professors from Notre Dame were on the watchlist, 100 of their colleagues petitioned the "Professor Watchlist" to be added to it themselves in a show of solidarity and to uphold academic freedom. You are invited to add your name to the watchlist. Visit Free Academics website and click on Take Action to sign the petition. To find out more about the Professor Watchlist, read a recent article from the Washington Post.
