Lecturers Vote to Unionize

Thursday, February 13, 2014

On Feb. 20, lecturers at UNH’s Durham and Manchester campuses voted to unionize. The UNH Lecturers United - AAUP will serve as the exclusive representative for all Durham and Manchester lecturers for the purposes of determining wages, benefits and other terms and conditions of employment.

Two hundred and three lecturers were eligible to vote, and 164 cast ballots in the union election which took place on Feb.12 and 20.The election results were 141 in favor of union representation, 23 votes for no representation. The NH Public Employee Labor Relations Board is expected to certify the election results sometime after the expiration of the five day objection period.

UNH is prepared to move ahead and bargain in good faith. Candace Corvey will serve as UNH’s chief negotiator.

Thank you,

Dick Cannon, vice president, finance and administration
