NTFC is on strike

NTFC Local #6546 is on strike today and tomorrow. This group of roughly 500 non-tenure-track faculty are requesting multi-year contracts for long-serving members. They have been negotiating since October 2014 with the University of Illinois administration, with no substantial movement from the University Administration on any core issues.

Picketing will take place outside the English Building (608 S. Wright, on the Quad) today until 5 p.m. and tomorrow between 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
