Raises delayed for members of new University of Illinois union

CHAMPAIGN - Some members of a University of Illinois non-tenured faculty union will have to wait to get raises that had already been offered.

This week, the new Campus Faculty Association was told by the university that some "specialized faculty" would not be given planned salary increases because the union doesn't have a labor deal.

The new union, which was formed by faculty members seeking better pay and multi-year contracts, was certified by the state on July 8.  The provost's office says it's appealing the state's decision to certify the union.

The number of union members affected by the university's announcement is unknown.
