The University of New Mexico announced Friday the adjunct and faculty endorsed two proposals in favor of union representation after two days of voting.

Results show members of the school's regular faculty voted 500 to 304 in favor of unionization. Adjunct faculty voted 256 to 26 in favor of forming their own union.

The move comes after a faculty union petition was filed in February.

Faculty members have complained that University of New Mexico professors are among the lowest paid in the country.
