Event Type7: 

Unionized faculty at the Brooklyn campus of Long Island University are locked out and picketing this week when they would rather be teaching. The Long Island University Faculty Federation has been bargaining in good faith with the administration at LIU since the spring. But last Friday they were informed that their health insurance will be cut off and they will no longer be paid for their work. LIU plans to redeploy administrators and has hired scabs to teach students when classes begin this week. PSC members are joining them on this picket line this Wed., Sept. 7 between 8 AM -1 PM at the corner of Dekalb and Flatbush Avenues.
The PSC has issued a statement in support. Click here for a fact sheet about the lockout, here for a flier and here to RSVP via the Facebook event created by the PSC chapter at the Graduate Center. You can also sign an online petition hosted by the AFT. It’s time for LIU to treat its employees with the dignity and respect they deserve by bargaining a fair contract now and ending this lockout.
