I am proud to have spent the last four days on strike, along with hundreds of my UPI 4100 union siblings at Governors State University, fighting against austerity in higher education. We have joined two other striking Illinois State universities: Chicago State and Northeastern Illinois. For more information about this unique moment, follow our Twitter page.
4/18 update: After seven days out, we have reached a tentative agreement. It's a start. More importantly, this was one of the most substantive and rewarding political experiences of my life, and the lives of many co-workers... and our workplace will never be the same!
