Organizing is how to get St. Thomas and others to play fair with adjunct faculty.

From an email received today:

Adjunct faculty at St. Thomas and other colleges and universities in Minnesota are organizing with SEIU Local 284 to address their low wages and lack of benefits. They are coming together to improve their working conditions and the learning experience of their students. With 2/3 of all new faculty now off the “tenure track,” this is an increasing important issue facing the future of higher education.

The men and women who teach at some of the most prestigious schools in the region should not have to struggle to support themselves and their families.

It is incredibly important for faculty to know the community supports their right to organize, so please take a minute to sign this petition and share with your networks.


In Solidarity,
Brian Elliott
Executive Director
SEIU MN State Council

Good for them. If it has to come to organizing to get a fair shake, then organize. The email noted an online petition community members are urged to sign:
