UConn-AAUP Update: June 2, 2022

UConn-AAUP Survey Results

On Thursday, May 19, 2022, the UConn-AAUP Executive Committee asked its members if they were in favor of the national AAUP affiliating with the American Federation of Teachers (AFT). This came after two informational meetings, discussion at the Annual Meeting, discussion at two representative assembly meetings, and a number of informational emails from the chapter and from the national AAUP.

At the close of business on Tuesday, May 24, 2022, UConn-AAUP closed the survey, and the results are as follows:

278 (71%) Yes

74 (19%) No

39 (10%) Abstain

The delegates who will be representing UConn-AAUP at the AAUP Biennial Meeting in Washington this June now have a clear message from the membership on how to vote on the affiliation.

In Solidarity:

Mary Ellen Junda, President

Jeffrey Ogbar, Executive Vice President

Michael Bailey, Executive Director
