New Joint Union Web Site
The closest thing to news at tonight's general meeting for the IEA unions on campus was the announcement of new joint website for the IEA unions . This site should of course continue to be regarded as the ultimate absolute gold standard for everything you'll ever need to know about faculty issues at SIUC, but the joint union site will clue you in to issues effecting folks other than (tenured/tenure-track) faculty. Among the things it links to is a new set of "FAQs" addressing various areas of concern, ranging from the legalities of "Intent to Strike Notices" to the unions' positions and approach to bargaining, as contrasted with those of the administration.
