Drive to Unionize Bentley U. Adjuncts Succeeds on Second Try

Sixteen months after rejecting the idea by a narrow margin, adjunct instructors at Bentley University have overwhelmingly voted to form a union affiliated with the Service Employees International Union.
The vote at the private college in Waltham, Mass., was 108 to 42. The union chapter is the latest of several formed in an SEIU campaign to organize adjunct faculty members at private colleges throughout the Boston area. Bentley’s administration, which had opposed the unionization of adjuncts there, issued a statement in which it accepted the election results, tallied on Thursday, and pledged to bargain with the union in good faith.
