Solidarity statement from LIUFF to APSCUF
The LIUFF stands in solidarity with striking faculty at the Association of Pennsylvania State College & University Faculties. We sent the following solidarity statement to APSCUF today.
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.
