October 19, 2016

Dear Association of Pennsylvania State College & University Faculties,

The Long Island University Faculty Federation Local 3998 NYSUT/AFT, AFL-CIO wishes to express our solidarity with you as you stand strong in your fight for a just contract.

On September 2, 2016, we were locked out by our administration at this same point in negotiations. Like yours, our management simply stepped away from the bargaining table, refusing to come to a fair agreement. We know all too well the attacks on faculty working conditions and what this means for student learning conditions in higher education. Please know that we see your fight as our own, and stand with you in your struggle.

In solidarity,

Jessica Rosenberg, President

Ralph Engelman, Vice President

Mohammad Ghriga, Treasurer,

Melissa Antinori, Grievance Chair

Emily Drabinski, Secretary

Sara Campbell, Executive Committee

Charles Guarria, Executive Committee

Stacy Horstmann-Gatti, Executive Committee

Edward Keane, Executive Committee

Arthur Kimmel, Executive Committee

Glen Lawrence, Executive Committee
