The adjunct faculty of East-West University in Chicago received notice on May 25, 2010 that they should "no longer consider themselves employed," one day after they had filed a petition for NEA/IEA union representation. This illegal firing must not be allowed to stand, as it threatens the right of all adjuncts to exercise their legal rights to organize in unions and collectively bargain.
The illegally-fired adjunct faculty of East-West University in Chicago need our support on Tuesday, July 13th, as they picket against the unfair labor actions of EWU Chancellor Khan and Provost Jain.
When: 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
Where: 816 S. Michigan Ave., in front of the main entrance of EWU.
If you can't be there, please call by phone or send emails in protest of these actions to:
Chancellor Dr. Mohammad Wasiullah Khan
816 South Michigan Avenue
Chicago, IL 60605
Provost Dr. Madhu Jain
(same address, phone, fax as above)
Professor Curtis Keyes is the main contact with the EWU united adjuncts; please cc any email protests to: EWUAdjuncts@gmail.com
