UIC moves toward unionization; tenure at risk in Nevada

A couple of stories to help view our situation in its wider context.

UIC faculty are moving toward unionization though it has yet to be seen whether a majority of faculty support this. Here's the AFT story on the move, which claims this would be the first public research university in Illinois to unionize. Oops. (Already sent them a comment.)

An Inside Higher Ed story details how many faculty at state universities in Nevada view changes to the state's policy as an attack on tenure, though state education officials deny this.

I will review and post comments as quickly as I can. Comments that are substantive and not vicious will be posted promptly, including critical ones. "Substantive" here means that your comment needs to be more than a simple expression of approval or disapproval. "Vicious" refers to personal attacks, vile rhetoric, and anything else I end up deeming too nasty to post.
