Zdenko Juskuv
President, CCRI Part-Time Faculty

At CCRI, our membership of adjunct (part-time) faculty members just voted to accept what will be our first ever contract. This comes after a long, two-year negotiation process. I'm really excited that we all are beginning the fight to get what all educators, and all workers, deserve: job security, access to grievance procedure, better pay and a voice in how their workplace is run. 

A contract is a complicated thing and dealing with an employer and the state is not always a straightforward task. Our negotiation team at CCRI could not have done it alone. Thankfully, our NEARI representative really dedicated himself to getting our contract done and NEARI made its resources and staff available to us so that we could accomplish this. 

Belonging to a union is about getting you and your colleagues the justice and respect you and they deserve.
