NLRB Official Says Fill-In Instructors at Lesley Can Join Union

The Chronicle of Higher Education

A regional official of the National Labor Relations Board has approved potential union participation for 14 Lesley University instructors classified as “temporary” because they were hired to fill in for absent faculty members for substantial period of time.
In a decision issued Wednesday, Jonathan B. Kreisberg, director of the NLRB’s regional office in Boston, said he did not see any reason why such temporary faculty members should be precluded from joining about 180 other Lesley instructors classified as “core” faculty members in voting on whether to form a collective-bargaining unit affiliated with the Service Employees International Union.
