Adjuncts Win Union Vote at East-West U.

June 9, 2011

Adjunct faculty members at East-West University, in Chicago, voted to unionize and to be represented by a chapter of the National Education Association. The vote follows numerous disputes in which the organizers accused the university of eliminating adjunct jobs to avoid a vote. The university released a statement after the vote in which it said: "All faculty and staff should be aware that this election will not affect anyone. Nor will this affect the current operations of the university. Although the university will bargain in good faith with the union representatives, this does not change our mission focusing on excellence and service."
