ST. LOUIS (AP) - Adjunct professors at Washington University have reached a tentative contract with the St. Louis school.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1VrKVWS) reports that details of the deal weren’t immediately released, pending ratification of the contract.

The deal gives the part-time instructors better job security and higher pay. Adjunct professors typically make up the majority of college instructors nationwide and work on semester-long contracts.

The median per-course pay for adjuncts in Missouri is about $3,000, $2,100 less than such pay at Washington University.

Adjunct faculty members in recent months have formed unions at Washington University, St. Louis Community College and St. Charles Community College.
