The union representing part-time instructors at Nassau Community College has voted out a leader who had sought to levy a $1,000 fine against members who refused last year to participate in a strike.
In voting conducted in November and tallied on Tuesday, members of
the New York college’s Adjunct Faculty Association unseated Charles
Loiacono, a former English professor who had been the union’s president
for 19 years. In an interview with Newsday,
Stefan Krompier, a professor of marketing who narrowly won the
three-way election, argued that Mr. Loiacono’s attempt to fine dozens of
the union’s members had left it divided and “was the last straw” for
many of them.
