University of Oregon Faculty Union Gains Recognition

The University of Oregon administration has recognized the faculty union at their institution. The actions by U of O admin are in sharp contrast to those of their counterparts at U of I who have tried to block our colleagues at UIC from gaining recognition. These efforts by the U of I admin have wasted thousands of dollars of taxpayers’ money on lawyers. We urge them to accept the democratic right of faculty to organize.  Read about the Oregon victory at:  http://www.aflcio.org/Blog/Organizing-Bargaining/1-800-University-of-Oregon-Professors-Win-Union-Voice
