Boston Business Journal Interviews Nicholas DiGiovanni Interviewed About Adjunct Faculty Unionization

The Boston Business Journal interviewed MBJ partner Nicholas DiGiovanni about Nick’s representation of Tufts University in its negotiations with its new adjunct union. He also commented on the recent growth of adjunct faculty unionization and its consequences. As Nick explained, adjunct faculty members are organizing on campuses throughout the Boston area, and those at Tufts University – now members of Boston’s SEIU Local 509 – were the first to finalize a deal with their university employer. While much has been written about adjunct union gains, Nick points out a number of areas where the Tufts’ adjunct union failed to achieve its goals.
