N.Y. Adjunct Union Ousts Leader Who Tried to Fine Non-Striking Members

The Chronicle of Higher Education

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.
