2 Faculty Bargaining Units Certified at Illinois-Chicago

June 29, 2012
 

The Illinois Labor Relations Board has certified the University of Illinois at Chicago United Faculty Union as the exclusive bargaining representative (through two units) of full-time tenured/tenure-track faculty members, and of full-time, non-tenure-track faculty members.

United Faculty is affiliated with the American Federation of Teachers and the American Association of University Professors.
