FACE/AFT: Margaret West Reinstated at Edmonds CC

Some of you may remember that about a year ago, fellow FACT Talk blogger Phil Ray Jack started telling the story of Margaret West, who, after 21 years of service at Edmonds Community College in Washington State, had been “non-renewed.” Not so coincidentally, West was also about to become the first part-time faculty member at Edmonds to assume the role of president of the faculty union at Edmonds. In response to Phil’s first post, a commenter asked what the union was doing in response and what others could do as well. Phil pointed out that the union was taking action on several fronts and encouraged others to offer their support.
