Voting concludes with 98 percent in support by first faculty at a top-tier research university in Illinois to form a union

   CHICAGO – After nearly two years of collective bargaining with university administration, today faculty at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) overwhelmingly ratified their first labor contracts, which will dramatically improve work life and professional conditions for tenure-track and non-tenure track members. The tentative agreement reached with management on April 16 was ratified with a decisive 98 percent of the vote this week.
   Faculty made history in 2011 by becoming the first faculty from a large research university in Illinois to organize a union – the UIC United Faculty (UICUF).
