“Unionized Adjuncts in Washington, D.C., Seek to Craft a Citywide Contract”

“Having organized well over two-thirds of part-time faculty members at this city’s colleges, labor organizers connected with the Service Employees International Union are now working to devise a common labor agreement covering all unionized adjunct instructors here.”

“At a national meeting for adjunct instructors held by the SEIU on Monday at Georgetown University, Kerry B. Danner-McDonald, a lecturer at Georgetown and leader in the city’s adjunct-organizing effort, told the audience that those working to devise such a contract still have "a lot to work out." But, she said, they expect to come up with a master agreement that sets minimum pay levels for all colleges but has the flexibility to tailor contracts to individual institutions.”

What are your thoughts?
