From the Picket Lines at UIC

The following report comes from Howard Bunsis, Chair of the AAUP Collective Bargaining Congress:

There was an enormous turnout of faculty at UIC today, as picketing took place all over the sprawling campus, and everyone congregated for two large rallies.

We had support from students, other unions on campus, as well as local activists, and finally faculty and grad students from the University of Chicago.

The AAUP was well represented, as myself and KIra Schuman were there to assist and organize strike preparation and implementation. It was an invigorating day, and we definitely showed the administration that UIC is about faculty and students working together.
