Encouraged by efforts to give part-time faculty voice, clout

I applaud the successful unionizing effort by adjunct faculty at Tufts University (“Part-time professors at Tufts to unionize,” Metro, Sept. 28). We should all be encouraged by this effort and others throughout the Boston area and across the country to organize part-time faculty and give them the compensation they need and deserve and a greater voice.

A different model has been in place since 1979 at Curry College, where full- and part-time faculty organized and have been represented by the American Association of University Professors. It has been the basis for a respectful and productive relationship to the mutual benefit of both the union and the college.
