The Adjunct Faculty Association is fighting for the rights of the Non-Tenure Track (NTT) academic workforce in the Pittsburgh area. Our members value education and scholarship, and together we seek the institutional support needed for best teaching students.
The casualization of academic labor creates hardships, undermines teachers’ ability to provide for students, and runs counter to the values taught in class. Adjunct faculty members have little to no job security, earn extremely low pay for the amount of work they do, and most do not have access to health insurance. In order to address these ongoing problems, a group of adjunct faculty at Duquesne University formed the Adjunct Faculty Association, affiliated with the United Steelworkers. We’ve been gratified by support and encouragement from adjuncts at various institutions, as well as from tenured faculty members and academic organizations. We hope you will also consider joining our efforts.
