FA Vote Results


The Faculty Association held their strike authorization vote today. I’m pleased to report the results of the FA’s vote:

88 percent voter turnout and 92 of those voting voted yes.

The goal here is a fair agreement that benefits both the employees and SIUC. These strike vote authorizations are a tool to achieving that. This is a union message to the administration: no more delaying, no more imposing, no more vetoing. Cooperate with us, work with us to create a better university.

While the votes are a collective message, you can deliver this message as an individual too:
