Tufts part-time professors to get better pay, job security

The Boston Globe

Most part-time professors at Tufts University will get a 22 percent pay raise over the next three years and improved job security under a new contract that could influence negotiations at other schools in the Boston area and beyond where adjunct faculty have recently organized or are considering doing so.
The Tufts deal, a three-year agreement ratified Friday after receiving approval from more than 95 percent of the roughly 200 adjunct teachers, will also keep an existing arrangement where professors who teach at least three courses over the course of an academic year are eligible for health, retirement, tuition reimbursement, and other employee benefits, according to union officials.
