85% of the faculty at East-West University, located on Chicago's Michigan Ave., are adjunct (not full time). Last spring, when word leaked to the administration that they were organizing a union with the Illinois Education Association, they were fired. On the same week of a demonstration called by the United Adjunct Faculty Association at the school, the NLRB filed an Unfair Labor Practice against East-West University (EWU) for violating the federally-protected rights of adjunct faculty. Scenes and interviews from the UAFA organized protest on August 26, 2010. Length 9:43. Produced by Labor Beat. Labor Beat is a CAN TV Community Partner.
