Dear Harrisburg University Faculty & Staff

Just a quick reminder; Employees covered by the National Labor Relations Act are afforded certain rights to join together to improve their wages and working conditions, with or without a union.

Employees who are not represented by a union also have rights under the NLRA. Specifically, the National Labor Relations Board protects the rights of employees to engage in “protected concerted activity”, which is when two or more employees take action for their mutual aid or protection regarding terms and conditions of employment. A single employee may also engage in protected concerted activity if he or she is acting on the authority of other employees, bringing group complaints to the employer’s attention, trying to induce group action, or seeking to prepare for group action. - National Labor Relations Board

I said way back in the first post that this blog was part of an effort to "improve working conditions for the faculty and staff" at Harrisburg University. Now is the time! Stand up for yourselves and stand up for the students. Faculty and staff need fair working conditions and fair contracts. If the faculty and staff had job security, the university would be a different place.

You can fight back. Contact local politicians, file complaints with the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the Middle States Commission of Higher Education.
