About Us

FFU ratified our first contract in August of 2018. Read about the organizing that lead up to our first contract below. In an article from the SEIU Faculty Forward website, our Campus Steward at Lincoln Center, Ashar Foley is quoted:

Ashar Foley, a Fordham University Lecturer in Communication and Media Studies and member of the union negotiating committee, said, “I’m so happy to have helped bring this change in our working conditions. Not only does it benefit us and our students, but it also makes a strong case for unionization to faculty at other Jesuit institutions, and to all other institutions of higher learning in the New York City area. By unionizing, we play our part in the Jesuit University mission of alleviating poverty, promoting justice, and protecting human rights.”
