National Adjunct Walkout Day 2015
On February 25, 2015, members of UConn-AAUP held an action to raise awareness for National Adjunct Walkout Day, to bring attention to the wages and working conditions of adjunct faculty and all contingent faculty on the UConn campus and across the country.
Many UConn AAUP members and colleagues came out to show support in solidarity with the plight of adjuncts and contingent faculty. Tenured, tenure track, adjuncts, and members of the GEU-UAW 6950 came out and held signs stating why they care about the working conditions of the migrant workers of academia.
