We are thrilled to announce that we have voted by a majority of 82 to 36 to have the Service Employees International Union Local 500 Coalition of Academic Labor represent us in our collective bargaining relationship with McDaniel College! This is a major victory for us in our effort to have the college recognize us as full members of the McDaniel community.
We adjuncts will soon negotiate a contract with the McDaniel administration and hope for a positive, collaborative process to improve teaching and learning conditions. We will be seeking improvements in job security, compensation, professional development resources, evaluation procedures, and other aspects of our employment at McDaniel. In general, we will continue to fight for respect and the right to full participation in the education of our students. Students first!
