Show your support for University of Illinois Faculty Union!

As of Tuesday, UIC United Faculty (IFT-AFT/AAUP Local 6456) members are on strike to win a fair contract. They have been negotiating with the UIC administration since April 2022, and working without a contract since August 2022. They are on strike for:

  • Fair minimum salaries

  • Salary increases that keep up with inflation

  • Mental health and disability resources

  • Earlier notice of reappointment for Non-Tenure Track faculty

  • Due process for Tenure Track faculty

They need your help! Here is how you can support them:

  • Learn more about their fight

  • Follow and share on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter

  • Sign a letter to Chancellor Reyes urging him to accept faculty demands and end the strike!

  • Donate to their strike fund

  • Join on the picket line between 10-12 and 1-3 at any of the following locations: - University Hall (UH) - Science and Engineering South (SES) - Lecture Centers - College of Nursing.

  • Attend a rally! Daily noon rallies will be held on the Quad (just west of Student Center East on Halsted).

TOGETHER, we are #IFTstrong.
