In All Podcasts by Producer Comments

Dr. Karen Dwyer and Dr. Bill Purcell who are staff at Point Park University join us in studio to announce that they have finally gotten their first contract 13 years after the beginning of their unionization process. They talk about how some of the professors were paid as little as $25,000 a year which Karen describes as “grotesque”. One of the methods that Karen said helped them win was treating each other as if they had a union even when they didn’t.
