WIU faculty union agrees to pay cut - Lainie Steelman, McDonough Voice

Western Illinois University’s chapter of the University Professionals of Illinois Local 4100 has agreed to a pay cut under a proposal voted on by members last week. According to chapter president Bill Thompson, members voted “overwhelmingly” to defer three-percent of their salary for the 2017 and 2018 fiscal years and to rescind a previously negotiated one-percent salary increase for the 2017 fiscal year starting July 1, 2016. Under the three-percent deferral plan, union members would be paid back the deferred salary, in equal amounts over the 2019 and 2020 fiscal years, if two conditions are met: WIU’s fiscal year 2016 state appropriations budget is at least 60 percent of the FY15 appropriations budget, and the university’s FY19 state appropriations and university-wide full-time enrollment equal 90 percent of the FY15 levels. http://www.mcdonoughvoice.com/article/20160511/NEWS/160519928
