The Bowling Green State University chapter of the American Association of University Professors on Wednesday declared that it had won the right to represent faculty members in collective bargaining -- for tenured, tenure-track and full-time non-tenure-track faculty members. Unofficial results from a union election show that 391 faculty members voted to unionize and 293 did not. The AAUP has been pushing hard to unionize faculty at universities, like Bowling Green, that have a range of doctoral programs. The university issued a statement saying: "The administration thanks everyone who took the time to vote in this election. While we would have preferred a different outcome, we respect the process and its result. We must all now commit to continuing the sound stewardship of the University in these difficult economic times."
