Howard University Faculty Threaten Strike


Howard University faculty are threatening to strike if the institution does not make changes to their working conditions.

On Wednesday, Howard professors, from full to assistant to adjunct, staged a demonstration to share their concerns: adequate pay, job stability, and appreciation for the work they do with Howard students on a daily basis. Some at the demonstration said that Howard’s internal institutional dysfunction becomes a burden for professors to repair

“Our commitment to a peaceful bargaining process has not changed and we will continue advancing good faith efforts to reach an agreement with the Union and address the needs of adjunct and non-tenure track faculty," Howard officials said in a statement.

Instructors have sent a proposal to Howard administration, signed by non-tenure track and tenure-track professors alike, with their demands. Should Howard fail to meet the requests of the faculty, the strike will begin on March 23.
