U of I Chicago Faculty on Strike Today

UIC faculty are holding a two-day strike on Feb. 18 and 19 to protest the failure of the administration to negotiate in good faith for more than 18 months. Today, Feb. 18, there are rallies planned at 10am and 12:30pm, in addition to picketing and demonstrations. There has been news coverage in the Chicago Reader, Chicago Sun-Times, and Chicago Tribune, and an Illinois AAUP statement of support. Read an article by UIC professors Lennard Davis & Walter Benn Michaels in Jacobin explaining the reasons for the strike.
