The University of New Mexico has legal representation in response to faculty members looking to unionize. 

According to the Albuquerque Journal, some UNM faculty are looking to create a new unit. Interim Provost Richard Wood says it’s the first time in at least 20 years that university professors have pushed to create a union.

Wood says if there is a vote on unionizing, 40 percent of the faculty would have to vote and a simple majority would be needed for passage.
