ACTION and UNIVERSITY DAY: Join the Planning Tuesday 9/27 and SAVE THE DATES 10/6 and 11/3

Dear UPI – the coalition of faculty, students, staff and administrators who brought you APRIL 1 – A UNITED DAY OF ACTION are at it again.

And remember, YOU ARE THIS COALITION!!

Please join UPI, AFSCME, and our student and administrative partners for a planning session Tuesday, 9/27 at 3:00 in the North Side of Alumni Hall. Please announce in classes and on your D2L site and encourage students to come out too and join the planning session.

This semester we are going to have events for 10/6 the Nationwide Day of Action with the Alliance to Reclaim Our Schools, . . .

. . . and on 11/3 UPI and the Coalition brings you UNIVERSITY DAY at Northeastern Illinois University!

Both days of activity will examine inequality and the budget fiascos Illinois continues to suffer.

This is it folks! It’s time to get on our marching shoes and get ready to fight back, learn and teach, and make sure we bring an end to the budget madness hurting our students, the state and our university.

Please plan time in your schedules for these events and encourage students to be there. Assignments that relate? Come to the planning session!

YOU MADE APRIL 1 THE BEST THING EVER ON THIS CAMPUS!

YOU got our state to move and brought an end to our furloughs.

I can’t wait to see what we accomplish this time!

Please make the planning session Tuesday a priority and be there.
