Long Island University Brooklyn locked out faculty in contract dispute
Administrators have locked out faculty at Brooklyn’s Long Island University campus in a dispute over a new contract.
Long Island University Brooklyn faculty members say they’re being paid less than their colleagues at the Nassau County campus. LIU Administration informed that the new contract proposal is more than fair.
As a negotiating tactic, the Long Island University Brooklyn’s administration locked out over 400 faculty members and university service employees represented by affiliated labor unions ahead of fall classes, which begin begin Wednesday, September 7, 2016. The lockout blocks professors from teaching or accessing their health care benefits.
Long Island University Brooklyn is assuring to provide well-qualified substitutes, but students say the dispute will upend the start of their semester. Long Island University students emphasize that’s unacceptable alongside the cost of their tuition. In average Long Island University students pay around $1,000 per credit.
Student Body organizers will hold a protest in support of faculty ahead of the resumption of negotiations later this week.
