Re: “Adjunct professors begin to organize for unionization” (QC October 17, 2013)

 

As adjunct professors come to play a larger role in the Whittier College curriculum, the issues that they face become the issues that we all face.  Helping Whittier College be a place of employment that values adjuncts is also in all of our interests.  For these reasons, the Whittier College Chapter of AAUP supports our adjunct colleagues’ efforts to improve their terms of employment, which may include the formation of a union should they choose to do so, to voice and further their interests. We also invite all adjunct professors to join our Whittier College Chapter of AAUP.

 

Sincerely,

 

Robert Marks

Acting President

Whittier College Chapter of AAUP
