Evergreen faculty organizes

("Unionize" is such a clunky verb.)
The union vote passed with 55 percent of the faculty who voted approving the union, said Laurie Meeker, a professor of film and one of the faculty organizers. About 82 percent of eligible faculty turned in a ballot, she said.
55% was enough? I'm surprised--I would have expected a supermajority for a vote that important.
