Their most recent event, “Towards a Just Contract in 2017,” was held at the CUNY Graduate Center and hosted five panelists to talk about the issues they have faced as adjuncts.

Of course, adjuncts agree with this sentiment. “The real attention has to be why we’re not already getting paid more; the fact the union has to fight for us in the first place.” Ruebenson said. “Why can’t professors expect to have a higher quality of life?”
