On the verge of a strike, NYU settles with its adjuncts: Though neither side would divulge the specifics of the contract, the university has confirmed that it will be a multi-year agreement that includes wage increases and benefits for adjuncts, while retaining the university's role in management and academic decisions. The union came out of the 12-hour talks pleased, said Scott Sommer, spokesman for United Auto Workers Local 7902, which represents NYU's part-time professors. "There were times that we thought we would settle, and times that we thought it would fall apart right until the last minute," Sommer said.
