2700 workers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have been denied a contract for over a year. These support staff and Medical Center employees - UIC's lowest paid employees - are members of the Service Employees International Union Local 73 & they have decided to strike. Management has refused to address the top priority of the workers - job security. Management says union workers are greedy for requesting modest raises. The University pleads poverty while giving a $170,000 raise to their new president.
UIC - settle the contracts!
Don't balance the budget on the backs of those least able to afford it.

Pat Herron, United States4 years ago Comments: Treat your workers fairly! Stop paying exorbitant salaries to those a the top and treat all people decently. This is a teaching institution. What kind of an example are you setting? What are you really teaching? The first thing you should be teaching is respect for human rights. Try that first. Pat Herron
