We are pleased to announce a new feature here on the New Faculty Majority's blog: Joe Berry's COCAL Updates, excerpted from Joe Berry's well known email list aggregating news and information about COCAL, labor, organizing NTT faculty labor and other contingent faculty issues.
Joe has been doing the list longer than 10 years, since the first Campus Equity Week (CEW) and the founding of COCAL in Chicago. for a more complete picture of Joe's extensive background in higher ed, labor and academic labor organizing, check out this (somewhat outdated since he's in Berkeley now, not Chicago) bio page for Joe.
