Effort Underway To Unionize Non-Tenure-Track Faculty At Skidmore College
(SARATOGA SPRINGS, NEW YORK) - An effort is underway to Unionize Non-Tenure Track Faculty at Skidmore College.
The group Skidmore Faculty Forward is seeking to join Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 200 United.
Organizers say the private college in Saratoga Springs relies heavily on Adjunct Instructors with no job security.
Ruth McAdams, an English professor who is part of the effort, says a primary goal is to end the college’s practice of using short-term staffing to fill long-term educational needs.
McAdams spoke with WAMC's Lucas Willard on Midday Magazine.
In an e-mail to WAMC, a spokesperson for Skidmore said the college values and is reviewing the issues raised by the Non-Tenure-Track Faculty.
