Statement of Support from Boston-Area Adjunct Faculty Union

SEIU Local 509--Boston-Area Adjunct Union

We, present and past officers of the Higher Education Chapter of Services Employees International Union Local 509, which includes adjuncts, full-time non-tenure track faculty, and graduate student workers at six universities in the Boston area, are too distant to join you on the picket line, but we are sending warm support as you strike to gain a fair contract from Wright State University.

A strike decision is never taken lightly. We applaud your courage and resolve because your working conditions truly are the learning conditions of your students. Thank you for fighting for current and future students of Wright State University and for the future of Higher Education in Ohio and across the nation.


In solidarity,

Steve Benson (Lesley University)
