College Fix with more on the unionization effort:

Kutztown University has five unions covering faculty and professional staff, and Aramark food service workers want to make it six.

A successful union drive could mean another hit to student wallets, following the Pennsylvania public university’s elimination of lower-cost dining plans.

A representative from Service Employees International Union, which has helped other universities with unionization for dining and other employees, reached out to Kutztown’s student government to rally support. Two-thirds of student representatives voted to support the unionization effort earlier this month.
