Adjuncts Unionize at Central Michigan

August 23, 2010

Non-tenure-track faculty members at Central Michigan University have voted to unionize and to affiliate with the American Federation of Teachers. The Detroit Free Press reported that 108 faculty members voted to be represented by the AFT, 20 voted to be represented by the Michigan affiliate of the National Education Association, and 35 voted not to be represented. The vote at Central Michigan is among several AFT wins for non-tenure-track faculty in Michigan this year. Adjuncts voted to form unions at Eastern Michigan and Ferris State Universities, and a new adjunct union negotiated its first contract at Western Michigan University.
