In December of 2020 adjunct faculty at Long Island University Post ratified a three year contract extension. “Management came to the table with givebacks, including changes they wanted on the job security and seniority language. We beat them back on that,” said Jerome Paredes, Local 1101 Vice President. The bargaining team included Paredes, Local 1101 BA Ken Spatta, Chief Steward Dr. Geoffrey Lasky, and CWA District 1 Staff Representative John Dempsey. LIU Post members voted overwhelmingly to ratify the agreement, which extends from January 2021 through December 2023.
