Frequently Asked Questions
The University has prepared responses to some of the questions that students, faculty, and other members of the Penn community may have about graduate student unionization.
Guidance for Faculty
There are legal requirements impacting what supervisors – as defined by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) – can say or do during a union organizing campaign. Because the NLRB considers many faculty members to be supervisors, the University has prepared guidance for faculty based on these legal requirements.
