Dear President Hynes:

 

The Adjunct Faculty at Holy Names University (HNU) will be voting to be recognized as a union on April 1st. I am writing this letter in support of those efforts and ask that you remain neutral on the issue. I support their right to freely and fairly choose for themselves on their unionization. There is no job security without adequate representation. Although, they are a majority of the faculty at HNU, they remain an unprotected class of employees. Without union representation, any employee has little redress for unfair treatment and cannot fully participate in contract negotiations or full governance.

Dear President Hynes,

The East Bay Alliance for a Sustainable Economy advances economic, racial, and social justice by building a moral economy based on good jobs and healthy communities. We address the root causes of economic inequity by developing strategic alliances among community members, workers, and people of faith to improve the lives of low-income workers and communities of color.

We see Holy Names University as an anchor institution in the East Bay, with a critical commitment to social justice and equality. We believe that commitment extends not just to the experience of the students at HNU, but also to the workers at all levels.
