Quinnipiac University Had Stripped Librarians-- Now Goes After Entire Union

The American Federation of Teachers prepared at its national meeting to censure the (Connecticut)Quinnipiac University and to begin a campaign to win back collective bargaining rights. AFT officials say that Quinnipiac has already taken advantage of its union-free status to strip librarians of certain rights, including the right to seek tenure. “This is a matter of principle and democracy,” said Rob Callahan, a national organizer for the AFT.

The American Federation of Teachers, at its biennial convention in Boston, called for a restoration of union bargaining rights after the private university in Hamden won a National Labor Relations Board ruling to decertify the union earlier this year.
