Federal Court of Appeals Rules Against Adjunct Unionization at Religiously Affiliated Institution

Inside Higher Education is reporting on a recent ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit that National Labor Relations Board rules regarding unionization do not apply to religiously affiliated institutions, and therefore an adjunct faculty union would not be permitted to form at Duquesne University (a Roman Catholic institution).
