A great article featuring contingent faculty voices from across Washington lays out why these professors are fighting for their union.
The Gonzaga adjuncts also say they earn much less than adjuncts in public colleges and universities. They have no job security, no health benefits and little, if any, voice regarding the direction of their workplace, those who are backing the union drive say.
Signatures are currently being gathered to form a union on GU’s Spokane campus.
“We’re not whining,” said Scott Kinder-Pyle, an adjunct who teaches philosophy and religion at GU. “It’s a privilege to teach. It’s a privilege to teach at Gonzaga. We just want an equal, legal standing.”
