The NLRB continues to certify faculty bargaining units on college campuses, although many of these effort have meet with mixed success and winning elections and gaining a collective bargaining agreement.

Per an update from Politico Pro:

The National Labor Relations Board certified a July 2016 union election by non-tenure track faculty at Northwestern University, clearing their path to collective bargaining.

The unit will include both full-time and part-time non-tenure track faculty at the Evanston, Ill., school, the union announced Tuesday.

Faculty at Northwestern organized under SEIU as Local 73, following faculty at the University of Chicago and Loyola University.
