Labor board orders ballots counted in Seattle University union bid


The push for unionization at Seattle University moved forward Tuesday as a regional labor board ruled that ballots cast by adjunct professors seeking to form a union be counted.

In a 14-page ruling, Ronald Hooks, regional director of the National Labor Relations Board, ordered that the votes be opened and tallied.

The university has until March 17 to decide if it will appeal the decision.
