Adjuncts Get Back Pay and Assured Classes at East-West

December 20, 2010

Adjuncts at the university had filed complaints about East-West after the university announced that it would no longer need many of their services -- a decision many questioned as it came just as the adjuncts were organized for a union, to be affiliated with the National Education Association. The NEA now plans a new union drive. East-West officials declined to comment on the news.
