College’s Adjuncts Split From State Union in Dispute Over Course Assignments

January 22nd, 2015

The union representing Columbia College Chicago’s adjunct faculty members has voted to break off from the Illinois Education Association in response to the statewide association’s perceived failure to keep adjuncts’ classes from being poached by IEA-represented college staff members.
Although competition over classroom assignments has been a frequent source of tension between part-time and full-time faculty members represented by unions, Columbia College Chicago is unusual in being the site of such a bitter dispute over work between its part-time faculty and staff.
Members of the private college’s Part-Time Faculty Association, a union also known as P-Fac, voted 232 to 50 in elections conducted by mail this month to disaffiliate from the Illinois Education Association, P-Fac said on Wednesday.
