It’s all about the union at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia: This month, the staff voted to affiliate with United Academics of Philadelphia/AFT. At the same time, faculty there are bargaining their first contract after joining UAP two years ago. The staff union is the first non-faculty group to join UAP; it is focusing on improving low pay linked to high turnover at the private arts university. UAP represents faculty—and now staff—at more than 30 institutions in the Philadelphia area.
