    Unfortunately, our local Illinois Education Association office in Palatine is closed due to the pandemic, but messages (847.359.0300) are forwarded to us. For an emergency situation, you may contact the HCAFA President via email (hcafapresident@gmail.com) or IEA’s central office in Springfield at https://ieanea.org/ieaconnect/ for telephone and live chat during their limited weekday hours as well as the email option. 

Dual Unit Merger Approved

Congratulations to all adjuncts!  Today, both teaching adjuncts and adjunct librarians/counselors voted to merge their units.  This merger will allow negotiations for both units to be combined.  It will also allow adjuncts to have membership in both units if they meet the requirements of both.

This election comes as a result of an Unfair Labor Practice filed by HCAFA on behalf of both groups of adjuncts.

We are happy to report that the Harper administration has come to recognize and support the merger.
