UNM hires law firm in response to faculty looking to form union


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.
