SFAI Adjuncts Vote Overwhelmingly to Unionize With SEIU!

The vote count took place this morning at the National Labor Relations Board offices in San Francisco. Of the votes cast it seems that one hundred twenty-four adjuncts voted YES to unionize with SEIU, and thirty five voted no. That means we won by something like a 78% margin! What a complete pleasure and accomplishment and relief! Victory is sweet, especially when it supports greater equity, diversity, and democracy in the world. I can only hope the SFAI administration that resisted our organizing so ferociously will change their minds quite quickly about the threat of this development when they discover the benefits of collaborating as equitable colleagues with the actual people doing the overwhelming majority of the actual teaching which is the actual reason SFAI actually exists.
