Lesley Adjunct Faculty Have Formed a Union

Why are we are choosing to unionize?

We teach because we love to. We believe Adjunct Faculty bring a wealth of dedication, field and academic experience to the classroom. It’s time for the playing field to level out.

There is an epidemic in higher education, and the solution has been to rely more and more on the part-time faculty contingent labor pool. Adjuncts tend to work in multiple institutions (some times 3 or more) to make rent, pay bills and pay for health insurance at high costs.
