IC CONTINGENT FACULTY SUPPORTED BY CORNELL GRADUATE STUDENTS UNITED ORGANIZING COMMITTEE (CGSU-OC) AND CORNELL ORGANIZATION FOR LABOR ACTION (COLA)
Contributed by Tom Schneller on 02/20/2017
The Ithaca College Contingent Faculty, including full-time and part-time faculty, have authorized labor actions up to and including a strike. The authorization vote came last week, after 18 months of bargaining failed to persuade the Ithaca College administration to commit to the fundamental labor principles of “pay parity” and “equal pay for equal work.” The faculty members facing contingent work conditions, amounting to almost half of the current number of faculty at Ithaca College, held a rally on Monday, Feb 20th at the main entrance of IC campus. The rally preceded two days of scheduled mediation with the College administration and demonstrated the group’s collective power as well as public support for their insistent struggle to secure fair working and living conditions.

Following the overwhelming show of support from contingent faculty in last week's vote, the bargaining committee(s) for full and part-time contingent faculty will return to the bargaining table for two scheduled sessions this week. The committee representing part-time faculty will be looking for the administration to move beyond rhetoric about bargaining and to actually address the fundamental issues separating the parties.
