A Case for Faculty Unions
Janet Stemwedel (nom de blog Dr. Free-Ride, of Adventures in Ethics and Science) has just posted an excellent entry about unionized faculty in the Cal State University system. My 4 readers may recall my own perspectives about academic unions - most notably my objection to the graduate student variety. This long post presents history, motivations and reflections about faculty unionization, and how that relates to the labor of love called higher education.
