TC3 #Adjunct Association

TC3 #Adjunct Association | A is for Adjunct | Scoop.it

Have you heard? Adjunct faculty at Tompkins Cortland Community College have begun organizing a union -- the TC3 Adjunct Association!

 

Our overarching goal is to build a strong and democratic organization and negotiate a fair contract. This will ultimately help to decrease the high adjunct turnover that exists at TC3 and enhance the college’s ability to both attract and retain the most dedicated and qualified adjunct workforce possible — things that can only help to improve TC3’s ability to offer the best educational experience we can for our students....


Questions? Please email us at tc3adjunctassociation@gmail.com or feel free to contact any member of the TC3 Adjunct Association Organizing Committee directly.

Georgetown University adjuncts have established an organizing committee. The instructors are seeking to join SEIU Local 500, which represents adjunct faculty at nearby George Washington University and American University.

Hey, @sarahkendzior, I think you'll dig this: http://t.co/aI4YWc0X. #Georgetown's adjunct professors move to unionize with SEIU.

 

Adjunct professors move towards unionization with SEIU by Vanya Mehta on October 4, 2012 in The Georgetown Voice »  News.

 

In response to the growing presence of Service Employees International Union organizers on campus, Georgetown’s provost Robert Groves addressed an email to all faculty members reaffirming the University’s respect and support of the right of employees to unionize. The SEIU, which represents 2.1 million workers in the healthcare, property, and public services sectors, began work this semester to unionize adjunct professors on the Hilltop.
