Adjunct Faculty Union, Students Organize at Mills College

Adjunct professors at Oakland’s Mills College voted to form a union in May, joining a nation-wide movement organizing professors who are outside the tenure track of higher paid faculty. The campaign went smoothly, with no opposition from Mills College administration, and a 78 per cent vote to approve the union. But now activists at Mills are organizing in the wake of new lay-offs, cuts and re-organization they say raise questions about the direction of the college. Christopher Martinez reports from Oakland.
