New Paltz UUP Chapter President Peter D.G. Brown spoke at a rally April 9th in support of SEIU’s efforts to unionize adjuncts at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. Marist is a private institution, dedicated to Catholic values, that costs $50,000 a year to attend. Its President, Dennis Murray, made over $2.6 million in 2011. Most of the courses are taught by adjuncts starting at $2,400 per course—less than one-thousandth of Murray’s salary. MORE
