A union seeking to organize adjuncts has reached an agreement with Central Michigan University on an election that will decide on collective bargaining. The union, affiliated with the American Federation of Teachers, has been complaining that the administration has been refusing to negotiate a reasonable deal on who could vote -- and protests were planned for Wednesday. Those events shifted after news of a deal on the vote. Under the agreement, those teaching the equivalent of at least one quarter time will be allowed to vote.
