Webster U Adjuncts Reject Unionization

May 12, 2015

Adjunct faculty members at Webster University have voted down a proposal to unionize and to be represented by the Service Employees International Union, St. Louis Public Radio reported. The vote was 268 against the union and 212 in favor, with 53 ballots that were challenged. Even if all challenged ballots backed the union, there would not be a majority in favor. A statement from the SEIU said that adjuncts have “experienced a setback in their quest to have their union on campus officially recognized but believe they have undoubtedly gained a voice on campus.”
