Unionization Drive Halted at California Institute of the Arts

February 26th, 2015

Efforts to unionize faculty members at the California Institute of the Arts have stalled just as professors were about to vote on whether to join the Service Employees International Union, the Los Angeles Times reports.
The SEIU is trying to organize part-time professors in cities across the country. The effort at the California Institute of the Arts was distinct in that nearly all faculty members would have been represented, because the college does not offer tenure. One professor told the Times that the petition to hold an election had been withdrawn because of a lack of support for unionization among faculty members.
