Adjunct faculty at the University of La Verne voted this week on unionization; chairs seemed to stay neutral (which, in today’s environment, is tacit approval, given that they’re management).  Meanwhile, adjuncts at Loyola Marymount are waiting to vote, pending a decision by the NLRB.  It seems (shock of shocks) that the LMU administration was so openly hostile that the NLRB has temporarily blocked an election.  No doubt having adjuncts unionize would destroy both of these universities, costing them each year nearly the salary of another assistant football coach or two.

Whatcha thinkin'?
