WARNING: IPI, COD, AND YOU!

WARNING:  IPI IS LOOKING FOR YOU!

The anti-union Illinois Policy Institute has again increased its efforts to encourage Association members to abandon their membership.  IPI backed the recent Janus case in the U.S. Supreme Court which found “fair share” provisions illegal.  The group supports the privatization of public education and sees weakening of unions as a way to promote that goal. If the IPI approaches you with “alternatives to unions,” please contact HCAFA for the reality of its campaign funded by the big money associated with education secretary Betsy DeVos.

WARNING:  COD IS LOOKING FOR YOU AS WELL!

The full-time staff union at College of Du Page is engaged in tough negotiations with its administration.  COD has placed advertisements for teaching positions which are primarily aimed at adjuncts with the goal of using them as strikebreakers should the full-time staff at COD have a job action.  HCAFA encourages adjuncts—members or not—to see through this transparent manipulation of professionals for what it is:  recruitment of “scab” workers and an intimidation of our COD colleagues.
