Labor unions are now aggressively attempting to organize adjunct faculty at colleges and universities. This may be happening or may be about to happen at your institution. Such actions have led to several union elections and detailed collective bargaining agreements covering adjunct faculty. Recently, the National Labor Relations Board in its Pacific Lutheran University decision revised its standard for determining when faculty members can unionize; potentially opening the door to a wave of new organizing efforts geared not only at unionizing adjuncts but possibly all non-tenured faculty and perhaps even line faculty.

Please join Scott Schneider as he discusses the colleges and universities which have faced organizing drives, common terms negotiated in collective bargaining agreements involving adjunct faculty, and changes in the law that will potentially make faculty labor organizing more common. Mr. Schneider will also offer practical guidance about developments in faculty organizing and what proactive steps colleges and universities can take now to address the concerns of their faculty.


Join us for a program that covers:

  • An assessment of the NLRB’s Pacific Lutheran University decision and the likely consequences of that decision for other colleges and universities
  • A checklist for administrators to assess whether your adjunct and nontenured faculty is permitted to organize based on the NLRB decision
  • A review of the faculty organizing campaigns that have taken place throughout the country
  • A review of common terms in collective bargaining agreements involving faculty
  • An evaluation of the core human resources issues that are prompting union organizing drives
