COCAL Updates

By Joe Berry

Some updates from the Chicago Coalition of Contingent Academic Labor.

Bowling Green U (Ohio) condemn admin role in crafting bill to outlaw outlaw collective bargaining.

Eastern Michigan U contract for new adjuncts union (AFT) approved.

Adjunct exploited at Plymouth State U (NH).

Good article on massive healthcare strike in CA (biggest in US history?!) that has many lessons for us in higher ed. Also because my daughter was in it as a Kaiser nurse. I am very proud.

A good article on the Wall Street occupation (ongoing and growing). I think this relates to all of us and also news of union endorsements and participation building, including Transport Union in NYC

Northern Michigan U adjuncts [or a portion thereof?] vote on coming into FTTT bargaining unit (AAUP)
