A campaign to unionize adjunct instructors at private colleges in
Minnesota hit a snag on Monday, as the part-time faculty members at the
University of Saint Thomas voted against forming a union, according to
the Star Tribune.
The campaign, run by an affiliate of the Service Employees
International Union, won a victory last month, when part-time professors
at Hamline University, another campus in the Twin Cities area, voted to unionize. The effort is part of a nationwide campaign by the union.
