As part of an ongoing effort to better address concerns and treatment of part-time faculty, adjunct professors at Boston University will soon participate in an election to determine whether or not they will unionize.
The National Labor Relations Board, an independent federal agency, sent mail-in ballots to the part-time faculty members Tuesday, said Jason Stephany, a spokesman for the Service Employees International Union 509, which, according to its website, represents more than 17,000 human service workers and educators in Massachusetts.
Laurie LaPorte, an anthropology lecturer in the College of Arts and Sciences, said working with her fellow adjunct professors has been a daily effort that has grown in magnitude.
