SIU Trustees OK Contracts with 4 Bargaining Units

CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) — The Southern Illinois University system’s overseers have signed off on contracts with four bargaining units representing workers at the university’s Carbondale campus.

The university’s board of trustees ratified the agreements Thursday. Members of the Faculty Association, Non-Tenure Track Faculty Association, Graduate Assistants United and the Association of Civil Service Employees voted last month to approve the contracts.

The Faculty Association reached the deal Nov. 9, nearly a week after many of its members went on strike at the 20,000-student university.

In other matters, university President Glenn Poshard said the system has received 30 percent of its state appropriations for fiscal year 2012.
