Adjunct professors and visiting professors at Siena College voted on
Wednesday to unionize with the Service Employees International Union,
the union said in a news release. Adjuncts at the New York college voted
86 to 27 in favor of unionizing, and visiting professors voted 16 to 5.
Siena is the latest in a handful of New York colleges where adjuncts have opted to join the SEIU’s Adjunct Action campaign, which seeks to organize part-time professors across the country. Adjunct professors at the College of Saint Rose, Ithaca College, and Schenectady County Community College have also voted to unionize.
