Adjuncts at U. of St. Thomas Reject Union

July 22, 2014

Adjuncts at the University of St. Thomas have voted by a large margin, 136 to 84, to reject a unionization bid by the Service Employees International Union, The Star Tribune reported. The campaign at St. Thomas was part of the SEIU's drive to organize adjuncts in various metro areas.

While adjuncts there at Hamline University voted to unionize, a scheduled vote at Macalester College was called off amid some adjunct skepticism of the union campaign.
