Contingent faculty at Pacific Lutheran University began organizing to join SEIU 925 in 2013.

Pacific Lutheran faculty haven’t yet won our union. However, our organizing led the National Labor Relations Board to a groundbreaking decision that paved the way for full-time contingent faculty and faculty at religious institutions to organize around the country.
