“Will Your Faculty Be Unionized? The NLRB Opens the Door”

Thursday, February 26 | 2:00-3:15 p.m. ET

Sponsored by 

This is a free, previously recorded webinar.

Unions are actively organizing private-sector college faculty, particularly adjuncts, at schools throughout the nation. Now the NLRB, putting its own 21st century spin on the U.S. Supreme Court’s seminal Yeshiva decision (finding faculty to be managers exempt from unionization) has potentially lowered the barriers to unionization in its Pacific Lutheran decision. What will be the effects of this ruling and its aftermath, and how can you get ready to deal with its implications?

During the webinar you will:

  • Hear about the labor law governing faculty organizing.
  • Learn how Pacific Lutheran may change the law, potentially making it easier for faculty to organize.
  • Hear how Pacific Lutheran affects faculty organizing at religiously-affiliated schools.
  • Hear about what’s happening in faculty unionization and related higher education unionization efforts such as with graduate student teaching and research assistants.
  • Learn best practices in light of these recent developments.
