Students in a classroom.

Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 284 is seeking to represent adjunct faculty who teach undergraduate-level courses and labs at St. Thomas. An election has been scheduled for eligible adjuncts to vote to determine whether to be represented by the union. This site is intended to provide the St. Thomas community with information about the union election, which is scheduled to occur by mail-in ballot between July 3, 2014 and July 18, 2014.

St. Thomas respects the right of our adjunct faculty to make a free choice about union representation. We encourage every member of our adjunct faculty and other community members to inform themselves about this choice and to share their perspectives through civil and open discourse. We urge all eligible adjunct faculty to vote, so that your views and interests are reflected in the election process and outcome.
