From our friends at the UMass Lowell Adjunct Faculty Union (UAF/UAW)
Adjunct Faculty at UMass Lowell are paid at a much lower rate than Adjunct Faculty at UMass Boston and UMass Amherst. UMass Amherst and UMass Boston Adjunct Faculty have benefits; UMass Lowell Adjunct Faculty have none. Please sign this petition calling on UMass Lowell to offer compensation and benefits on par with the best practices of other University of Massachusetts campuses. We also ask you to support our call for a representative voice and vote in department meetings and access to services and facilities to support excellence in teaching.
Adjunct Faculty at UMass Lowell teach the majority of Freshman and Sophomore classes. Tell Chancellor Moloney that you support the UMass Lowell Adjunct Faculty!
