In February 2015, the first National Adjunct Walkout Day took place. The MLA simultaneously conducted Action for Allies and encouraged members to take a survey about their campus’s labor practices and to use it to start departmental discussions. Panelists from the Executive Council and the Committee on Contingent Labor in the Profession report on their local efforts.
