Call from #KeithHoeller to Stand Up for Nassau CC #Adjuncts!

Call from #KeithHoeller to Stand Up for Nassau CC #Adjuncts! | A is for Adjunct | Scoop.it

Someone in New York state needs to coordinate the campaign ASAP. Send out alerts. Keep everyone posted. Who in New York will do this? Frank Reiser? Mary-Faith Cerasoli? Union leaders? Someone else?  


Who appoints and can remove the Board of Trustees of a public community college?  Someone needs to find out immediately.

If so, we need a letter writing campaign to him. We need his address (preferably email). We need a press release. We need to contact the press. 

We need sample letters. Tell us where to send them. 

NCC is where Mary-Faith teaches. The independent union has been protesting sweatshop conditions. The public needs to know about it. 

This is union-busting of the highest order. 

Cordially, Keith Hoeller

ON STRIKE - Nassau Community College Adjunct Faculty Association

ON STRIKE - Nassau Community College Adjunct Faculty Association | A is for Adjunct | Scoop.it

SHOW UNITY & STRENGTH


All AFA members are expected to picket from 3:30 PM - 7:30 PM every day beginning September 10.


The Adjunct Faculty Association (AFA), an independent union of adjuncts at Nassau Community College (NCC), represents 2600 adjunct faculty. Without the teaching skills of the adjunct faculty, NCC could not function. Responsible for teaching more than half the courses, the adjunct faculty is the backbone of the college.


Charles Loiacono writes:

The strike will continue until the agreement that we negotiated in good faith is recognized. All the maneuvers, threats, fuzzy math, and exaggerated claims have only prolonged the strike and moved us further apart.

 

On another front, I have gotten e-mails from unions around the country supporting the AFA and encouraging us to stand firm.
