These local heroes are rank and file faculty and professional staff who volunteered hours of their time to help increase our membership and keep our union strong. Due to their membership recruitment efforts, our local’s adjunct faculty membership rate increased by 26.9%, from 282 to 358 members, and our full-time/part-time membership rate increased by 8.5%, from 442 to 482 members. Today, our union is stronger because of their efforts.
