SAVE THE DATE: UPI Membership Meeting for Nominations and Update on Negotiations 2/26 @ 3:00 in LL-Library Classroom

Hey all – please save the date and BE THERE!

UPI Membership Meeting for Nominations and Update on Negotiations 2/26 @ 3:00 in LL-Library Classroom.

Are you a member who has signed a card? If not, the deadline was extended and you have until Tuesday, February 24 to turn in a membership card and be eligible to vote in the Spring UPI elections.

Need a card or need to give it to us? Please email Charles Steinwedel at C-Steinwedel@neiu.edu or Lisa Wallis at L-Wallis@neiu.edu.

And please make this meeting a priority.

In addition to the Elections Committee taking nominations from the floor, the Negotiations Team will have an important report to make to us on the status of their work.

Need a little reading to keep your head in why our union is so incredibly important for our students?

Check out this article from The Chronicle of Higher Education. It talks about how much, make that how little, of the overall operating costs of a 21st century university go into instruction.
