Share with others:
The National Labor Relations Board has impounded the ballots in the union election of the Adjuncts Association of the United Steelworkers at Duquesne University.
The ballots were impounded Tuesday while the appeals process continues. The university at one point signed an agreement to authorize an election and then argued it had a religious exemption.
The union is trying to organize 124 part-time, nontenure-track faculty within Duquesne's McAnulty College & Graduate School of Liberal Arts. The union listed improving job security, pay levels and working conditions as its goals.
