Adjuncts at San Francisco Art Institute Vote to Unionize

From The Chronicle of Higher Education:

Adjunct professors at the San Francisco Art Institute, a nonprofit art college, have voted to form a union affiliated with the Service Employees International Union, following a similar vote this month by adjuncts at Mills College, another institution in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The SEIU’s Adjunct Action campaign for the Bay Area said that the vote was 124 to 35 in favor of unionization. The institute’s visiting faculty members, as the institution calls them, are the latest to join the SEIU’s effort to win better pay for part-time professors across metropolitan regions.
