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.

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.
