On Labor Day weekend, the full time and adjunct faculty at the Brooklyn campus of Long Island University were informed, with less than a day’s notice, that they were locked out of their campus. They are no longer being paid and their health insurance has been cut off.
The faculty at LIU and their families depend on their paychecks and health insurance. Please help them in their time of need by clicking here to donate to the Long Island University Faculty Federation solidarity fund.
The lockout is an employer’s strike—it’s a contemptible way to bully workers. As far as we know, this is the first time in American history that an institution of higher education has locked out its faculty! But if LIU gets away with this lockout you can be sure it won’t be the last. The LIU lockout has also deprived its students of the quality education they deserve – and pay for! – by redeploying unqualified administrators and replacement workers to teach classes. The LIU students, by the way, are standing in solidarity with the faculty and conducted a mass walkout on Thursday.
Our brothers and sisters need your help. The faculty’s ability to continue to stand strong against the administration depends on their being able to weather this lockout financially. Click here to donate to the LIU Faculty Federation solidarity fund today.
Adding insult to injury, the LIU administration chose Labor Day weekend, when Americans reflect on the importance of the labor movement, to lock out its own faculty—and disrupt the education of the 8,170 students on its Brooklyn campus.
We will continue to fight until LIU’s administration restores our members’ pay and benefits and returns to the bargaining table to settle a fair contract.
In the meantime, show your solidarity with your New York State United Teachers/American Federation of Teachers brothers and sisters and their families by clicking here to donate to the LIU Faculty Federation solidarity fund today.
Contributions can be made by individual members and by locals. Please circulate this message to your members and strongly encourage them to give whatever they can afford IMMEDIATELY. Time is of the essence if the members of the LIUFF are to prevail in this struggle.
We hope everyone enjoyed their summer! The Bellmore and Merrick Street Fairs are right around the corner and we need your help to ensure that we have sufficient coverage to run both events successfully. The Bellmore and Merrick Street Fairs are important events in our community. Both fairs are early this year and we would appreciate it if faculty and staff members would consider volunteering 1-2 hours of their time.
The Merrick Street Fair:
• Saturday, September 10th and Sunday, September 11th
• Volunteers should report to the BMCHSD table/tent located in front of RS Jones Restaurant
The Bellmore Street Fair:
• Saturday, September 17th and Sunday, September 18th
• Volunteers should report to the BMCHSD table/tent located in the LIRR parking lot near the corner of Bellmore Ave and Sunrise Hwy
We could use 1 or 2 teacher volunteers for each time slot. Below is a link to our Google spreadsheet to view what time slots need to be filled by teacher volunteers.
Those interested in volunteering 1-2 hours of their time should email Jessica Chilton at email@example.com with the time slots they are interested in filling. An email will be sent to each teacher volunteer giving them specific directions on what they need to do to help out on their assigned day!
Attention Art Club and Honor Society Advisors:
In the past you have done a wonderful job setting up student volunteers, we would appreciate the help- please email us with any questions and concerns. Your students' talents are always a welcomed addition.
We ask that teachers please make announcements in their classrooms including the event details. Students should volunteer for a minimum of two hours. They will be expected to assist the children with some simple and fun crafts. Children who attend the festivals especially enjoy the face painting. Teachers may e-mail us the names, dates, and times students plan to attend. Students will be required to sign in with Ms. Azzara or Mrs. Chilton and we will inform teachers of student participation. (This is a great opportunity for students to earn community service!)
Thank you again for your help and we hope you enjoy the rest of your summer!
