Hat tip Campus Reform
"Ah wunnerful, ah wunnerful, ah."
Here is an "encouraging" piece of news out of Pittsburgh, where the regional office of the National Labor Relations Board has ruled that adjunct teachers at Duquesne University can join some adjuncts union under the Steelworkers of all people.
Adjuncts working on their lesson plans
"You're new here, ain't ya, Buddy. Are you an apprentice?"
"No. I'm an adjunct."
Share their salary with students? Are these people smoking their socks? I wonder if this means that adjuncts will be forced to join a union. And a steelworkers union, no less. As a former resident of Pittsburgh, I didn't realize we still had steel mills in this country.
As an adjunct teacher at UC Irvine, I can tell you that the day they tell me I have to join some union is the day I quit.
