Antioch adjuncts vote to unionize

Adjunct and contingent faculty at Antioch University, a private nonprofit college in Seattle, have voted to form a union.

The vote was 85 to 14 to join Service Employees International Union Local 925. It was not contested by the college, and the results of the all mail-in ballot were announced Wednesday.

Union votes at two other Western Washington private colleges — Pacific Lutheran University and Seattle University — have been contested by the college administration, and participants are awaiting a ruling from the National Labor Relations Board. The schools have argued that the NLRB does not have jurisdiction over religious universities.

Adjuncts and contingent faculty are non-tenured faculty members who work full- or part-time, usually for less money than their tenured counterparts. They have become an increasingly larger part of the college faculty at public and private schools alike in recent years.
