Reactions: Contingent faculty seek unionization

-First published on Lute Times–
Contingent faculty at Pacific Lutheran University published a letter April 12 in The Mooring Mast stating they are seeking unionization through Service Employees International Union.
Employment for contingent faculty relies on the changing needs of the university from year to year. They are also paid a fraction of what full-time faculty earn.
Although tenured and contingent faculty spoke about their opinions, others on campus declined to comment. A pre-tenure professor did not comment because she didn’t want to put her job in jeopardy. Another staff member would not comment because of a connection to administration.
Why do PLU students vote?
With the 2012 election fast approaching, we were curious to see if students at Pacific Lutheran University students were voting and why. We wondered what issues were important to college students and if people in our generation think that it is necessary to exercise the right to vote.
