Mission Statement

The purpose of this blog is to deconstruct the rhetoric and strategies of faculty union advocates at the University of Illinois. A consequential decision like this must be based on facts, not spin. Right now only one side of the argument is being presented to faculty. This blog represents the other side of the argument.

The tenured faculty union movement at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign has died down, and for now we are giving this site a rest. We are quite ready to renew postings, and even expand the effort, if and when the debate over unionization returns.

In the meantime, we hope that these resources help inform tenured faculty union debates elsewhere. We still get visits to this site.
