Adjunct professors at Robert Morris University in Pennsylvania have voted overwhelmingly to unionize, the Pittsburgh Business Times reports. The faculty members will join the United Steelworkers union.
A spokesman for the university, Jonathan Potts, said it was prepared to bargain in good faith with the faculty members. “We are appreciative to everyone who voted,” he said. “We encouraged everyone to vote, no matter where they stood on the issue, and we are glad they did.”
The 125-to-67 vote came amid a broad campaign, most prominently by the Service Employees International Union, to organize adjuncts in urban centers nationwide.
