Tentative Agreement Reached Between EIU and Its Faculty Union


Representatives of Eastern Illinois University and the University Professionals of Illinois have announced that a tentative agreement has been reached between the two parties.

The agreement covers faculty and academic support professionals.

A summary of the agreement is expected to be released in the near future. The agreement will be submitted to the faculty for ratification, and to the EIU Board of Trustees for its approval, as soon as possible.

Robert Wayland, chief negotiator for Eastern's administration, said the university is pleased that a settlement has been reached.

The announcement of a tentative agreement came early this morning (Oct. 18, 2006) following a lengthy negotiation session which lasted until about midnight Tuesday and involved both parties, as well as a federal mediator.

Negotiations began in May, with both sides agreeing to an indefinite extension of the previous contract, which expired Aug. 31.
