The National Labor Relations Board on Thursday will count the ballots of Duquesne adjunct instructors seeking to organize as a collective bargaining unit with the United Steelworkers.

A spokesman for the United Steelworkers said the count will take place at 1 p.m. at the NLRB's regional office in Pittsburgh.

The labor board impounded the ballots from the part-time university instructors in July and placed them in a safe after university officials filed an appeal arguing that Duquesne is exempt from labor board oversight because it is a religious institution.

On Friday, the NLRB in Washington, D.C., issued a ruling ordering that the ballots be counted.

Duquesne officials have said they will file another appeal if the adjuncts win the election.
