• Labor Relations

    Labor Relations is a service of the Office of Human Resources. This Labor Relations page is an information hub for both union employees and university managers who are responsible for supervising union employees. The university is committed to having good relationships with its unions and unionized staff. Through this website, employees have online access to their collective bargaining agreements or union contracts and other resources. To begin, select your employee category from the side menu.

    For general information about your rights as an employee and the obligations of employers and unions under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), go to the National Labor Relations Board website.

    Students and Unionization

    After a recent decision from the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), graduate research and teaching assistants and those in certain other student positions at The New School are invited to participate in a binding vote on whether or not they wish to be represented by a union (SENS-UAW) on Wednesday, May 3 and Thursday, May 4.
