  • Jazz Part-Time Classroom Faculty

    The New School recognizes the Associated Musicians of Greater New York, Local 802, American Federation of Musicians, AFL-CIO, as the collective bargaining representative of the part-time faculty of the School of Jazz at The New School, as further defined in the regular, part-time classroom faculty collective bargaining agreement between Local 802 and The New School.

    All faculty members who belong to the union and all supervisors of these faculty members are required to thoroughly review the contract between the university and Local 802.

It lists the agreed-upon changes to the contract that expired on June 30, 2015.
