AAUP: The Union We Deserve

Long after Phil Hanlon leaves the Hanover Plain, his legacy of poor administration could linger on in the form of a contentious campus chapter of the American Association of University Professors. Management gospel has it that leaders get the union that they deserve, and just as faux-avuncular Jim Wright found himself with a SEIU union among unhappy Hanover Inn employees, so now has Phil sown the seeds of a faculty rebellion (though not the kind that I had hoped for). Here is the AAUP announcement. It was distributed in papers placed on the chairs of faculty members at Monday’s faculty meeting:

Good for the group for roping in two members of the Economics Department. Bipartisanship lives in Hanover.

The AAUP’s first order of business was the closing of UPNE:

Can we expect a union of adjunct professors next? And then post-docs and grad students? Way to go Phil.

Addendum: The Valley News has a thorough report on the faculty meeting.
