The Long Island University Faculty Federation, with the full support and backing of the American Federation of Teachers, and its state affiliate, New York State United Teachers, has secured an end to an unprecedented 12-day faculty lockout imposed by the LIU administration. Faculty will be made whole on health care costs; back pay will be determined in continued negotiation.

Contributions made from this point forward will be used to help with financial hardships that faculty may face. Remaining funds will be retained by AFT's militancy fund.

On Labor Day weekend, faculty at the Brooklyn campus of LIU were informed, with less than a day's notice, that they were locked-out of their campus. Their health insurance is cut off and they will no longer be paid for their work. The lock-out is the administration's way of refusing to reach an agreement that would address the disparity in investment between LIU's urban and suburban campuses. Instead, LIU plans to redeploy administrators and has hired temps to teach students when classes begin this week. LIU Brooklyn students, and the community served by LIU Brooklyn, must not be short-changed.

Please support LIU Brooklyn faculty in their fight for fairness and equity.
