We are a group of NYU adjuncts and New School part-time faculty who sought fair representation by running for positions on the Executive Board, the office of NYU Unit Chair, and seats representing the NYU unit on the Joint Council of our local, ACT-UAW 7902.
The Workers in Unity slate is committed to the principle that members are the highest authority in our union. We are united by a progressive vision of a local that is participatory, politically engaged, and democratically run.
Many of us were involved in winning the significant gains of our newest contract with NYU by rejecting concessions, organizing a successful strike authorization vote, and bringing fellow adjuncts to the table to testify about the value our labor creates for the university.
By drawing strength from our diversity and emphasizing rank-and-file organizing, collective action, and worker solidarity, we seek to empower our local to stand up for our interests and those of workers everywhere.
RESULTS ARE HERE Thank you for voting!

We are visual and performing artists, radio producers, lawyers, playwrights, psychologists, game designers, editors, social media strategists, technologists, filmmakers, multimedia and television producers, business and organizational strategists, union organizers, computer engineers, social workers, and human rights, racial justice, immigration rights, and queer activists. We come from a range of socioeconomic, ethnic, religious, multi-lingual, and racial backgrounds, and we recognize the value in our diversity.
We represent almost every school within NYU, and we teach at The New School as well. We are currently serving on the Joint Council, on the NYU Adjuncts Organizing Committee, and as newly elected Stewards. We were on the NYU Adjuncts Bargaining Committee in 2022 fighting for a better contract—and pushing for open bargaining. We worked hard to turn out support among NYU adjuncts to authorize a strike, and we formed a Strike Committee in readiness. We marched on the picket line at the New School. We were active in the One Member One Vote campaign and the campaign to elect Unite All Workers for Democracy (UAWD) candidates in the UAW national election.
We are workers united in action to make our union better.
