The MICA Adjunct faculty is trying to start a union, and students are organizing to show their support as the administration continues unethical union busting tactic. 

If you attend MICA or are in the Baltimore area, please come to Cafe Doris, 1470 Mt. Royal Avenue at 5pm this Friday to learn more about what we can do. 

Why should you care about supporting the adjunct union as a student?
As our tuition rises every year administrators keep accepting yearly pay raises. The last raise for our adjunct professors was back in the 90’s. MICA is an educational institution, created to serve us, the students. If the people directly facilitating our education aren’t being treated fairly we should not stand by idly, especially when a projected career path for many of us is to become college professors.

Demand transparency, it is our right.

in the mean time, PLEASE sign this petition to show your support, a print out with direct testimonials will be hand delivered to Fred Lazarus tomorrow afternoon. 

hey everyone, Fred is sending out emails saying that the union would be an undue burden on our adjunct faculty. Lazarus cites the “cost” added to the faculty in the form of union dues that “is neither needed or desirable.” The SEIU 500’s union dues are 34 a month (while you are working for MICA) for those making more than 5500, and 24 a month for anyone making less than 5500. If anything up to 16 dollars a paycheck is an undue financial burden in the eyes of the administration, then what about cost of living, the cost of materials and supplies that so many of our practicing artist faculty require, transportation to and from campus (and to other campuses, for those who teach at multiple schools) and other expenses?

I have been fascinated by Gillian Wearing’s work since I first encountered it and especially since experiencing her work Trauma in person, so seeing this piece being made blew my mind.

All that exists will soon change. Either it will be turned into vapour, if all matter is unity, or it will be scattered in atoms.
