NYU staff to join faculty in taking no confidence vote

Source: UCATS Local 3882, NYSUT, AFT, AFL-CIO

The Executive Council of the Union of Clerical, Administrative and Technical Staff at NYU (UCATS), Local 3882 voted last night to take to their membership the issue of President John Sexton’s leadership.  The UCATS leadership joins the NYU faculty in taking a no-confidence vote.

The nearly 1,400 NYU staff represented by UCATS are experiencing stagnant wages, unmanageable healthcare costs and a deteriorating quality of work life.  The enrichment of those that have at the cost of those that have less, has been a hallmark of President Sexton’s leadership. The resources required to proceed with the NYU 2031 expansion portends three decades of disinvestment in faculty and support staff who deliver the education for which NYU students pay so dearly.

UCATS represents approximately 1,400 staff working throughout the various schools and divisions of New York University.
