The Chronicle of Higher Education
June 4th, 2015

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.
