Fwd: Speak Out next Wed, 1-2 P in the B-wing Courtyard

UPI – be there for this speakout to support our brothers and sisters in AFSCME and thus our own working and teaching conditions.

In solidarity!

Come out, come out, wherever you are! We’re Speaking Out again and really, really want you to join us next Wed 1-2P in the B wing Courtyard.

This has been an extremely difficult time for all of us as we weather this heartless, cruel layoff/bumping process; thankfully it is concluding by next week. That said, as a union we continue to stand in opposition to the process.

The President claims the new budget increases NEIU’s costs for health insurance and pensions. In fact, there’s virtually no increase in these costs. I’m attaching a letter we sent to the President inquiring about this.

Worse yet, it is quickly becoming apparent that there are not enough office staffers left to provide adequate services to our students and to you as faculty for the upcoming fall semester and going forward.

It was great to see so many of you at our last Speak Out. We need you with us again next Wednesday from 1-2P in the B wing Courtyard for another Speak Out! We’ll have a bit of fun – join us to see how- as we demand the layoffs be reversed now. There may be some roles for you to play in the fun part if you’re game! Please see the attached flyer for details.

In Solidarity,
Ellen
