Faculty Union formed at UIC

The faculty at the University of Illinois at Chicago voted recently to form a faculty union, which will be affiliated with the American Federation of Teachers (AFT).

The American Association of University Professors (AAUP), which supported the UIC faculty unionization efforts, reports on faculty organization and union authorization vote in a 29 April 2011 story on the AAUP website.

Graduate students and faculty at Northern Illinois University will want to track how the unionization movement at the neighboring UIC campus proceeds.
