Organizing HBCUs

We are faculty and staff at HBCUs. We believe in the mission and historical legacy of HBCUs– to stand up for economic and social justice, provide opportunities for our students and instill them with lifelong values of ambition, solidarity, excellence, and resilience. In order for all of us to continue that mission, we need to establish and grow HBCU union power.


In states where public employees lack a framework for collective bargaining, constitutional freedom of Speech and Freedom of Association protections give you the right to join a labor union and organize collectively to seek improvement of the terms and conditions of your employment.

Form a Union

When working people come together, they make things better for everyone. Joining together in unions enables workers to negotiate for higher wages and benefits and improve conditions in the workplace. Thousands of working people - all across the country and in all kinds of jobs - organize unions every year because unions are the best way to secure the things you care about.
