A complaint of unfair labor practices has been filed against the Community College System of New Hampshire by the State Employees' Association on behalf of nearly 1,500 adjunct faculty members. The disputed issues include how many hours adjuncts are permitted to work as schools seek to avoid paying benefits under new provisions of the Affordable Care Act. "For many of us professors, this is our job, our livelihood, and if they're limiting us to nine credit hours a semester, that means we're only going to be making like 10 grand a year. That's not a sustainable lifestyle," said Rick Watrous, an adjunct at NHTI, Concord's Community College.
