Adjuncts at Point Park U. Vote to Unionize

The Chronicle of Higher Education
June 25th, 2014

   Adjunct instructors at Point Park University, a private institution in Pittsburgh, have voted to form a union affiliated with the United Steelworkers, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has reported. The vote was 172 to 79 in favor of unionization.
   The United Steelworkers’ Adjunct Faculty Association previously mounted a similar union drive at another Pittsburgh institution, Duquesne University, where adjuncts voted in 2012 to unionize. Duquesne has challenged that union election, arguing that as a Roman Catholic institution it is exempt from the jurisdiction of the National Labor Relations Board.
