Adjunct faculty members at Webster University have voted narrowly against forming a union, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
The result is a setback for the Service Employees International Union, which is attempting to organize adjuncts in a series of metropolitan areas across the country in order to enhance their bargaining power with the colleges that employ them.
In January the SEIU persuaded adjuncts to unionize at Washington University in St. Louis, just a few miles north of Webster’s main campus.
