04 Apr UIC Healthcare Concerns
As reported at our membership meeting last month, we drafted and sent in January a joint letter from the UIC Academic Professional Advisory Committee, UIC Faculty Senate, UIC Staff Advisory Council, and UIC United Faculty to President Killeen regarding our serious concerns about anticipated changes in health care costs. These are also concerns of our Chancellor, who has met with the president and other UI chancellors. The response we got was disappointing, taking a “wait and see” approach. Our joint response in a letter sent two weeks ago was to meet as soon as possible, to prepare and develop potential strategies laid out in our initial letter. We are still waiting for a reply but will follow up and keep you informed. Correspondence between our Coalition and the University is linked below.
