LAS VEGAS, N.M. (AP) - Highlands University professional staff has a new union.

The Las Vegas Optic reports (https://goo.gl/YL8pPZ) that the new unit, which represents roughly 80 professional staff, was officially certified by the state labor last week. Those employees are now part of the New Mexico Highlands University Faculty and Staff.

The petition to form the new bargaining unit was filed less than three months after Highlands facilities, clerical and maintenance staff workers voted overwhelmingly to organize. The northern New Mexico college’s faculty formed a collective bargaining unit years ago.

The new bargaining unit includes the university’s professional staff but excludes several categories of employees, including supervisory, managerial and confidential employees.
