The more members we have when bargaining begins, the greater our strength at the table.
But join now, because when a majority of ISU faculty do so, the state labor will certify us as bargaining representative. (Note: a vote will be unnecessary since we will file what is termed a majority interest petition).
Dues will not collected until after our state labor board certification, and then after bargaining actually begins.
Joining now helps at the state level, where you will add your voice to efforts to hold Springfield accountable.
