Who We Are

BCF-UAW is a new union for over 200 contingent faculty members at Barnard College, a liberal arts college for women affiliated with Columbia University, in New York City. We are a unit of UAW Local 2110 and are currently in negotiations with the Barnard administration over the terms of our first contract. Our efforts are directed by two committees elected by our membership.
