City Council supports union for Northeastern University
April 12, 2019
Councilor Janey, who filed the resolution said, “The City Council has been very active in advocating for workers… As someone who has been a strong advocate for education in this City, I know how important it is to [listen to] the voices of educators who are trying to support our students.”
Unions have historically helped bring economic and social democracy to the City of Boston. Providing full-time faculty with greater freedom to form unions will allow them to better serve their students, with the added security of academic freedom and job protections.
