California is set to guarantee collective bargaining rights for adjunct faculty at community colleges with a law that supporters say is the first of its kind in the nation.
Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday signed Assembly Bill 1690 and Senate Bill 1379, mandating that state’s community college districts come to the negotiating table with part-time instructors to discuss reemployment and termination rules.
