Why I Joined UFA

Share This

My name is Michelle Xia, and I am an assistant professor in Statistics. I
support the UFA due to two major reasons: (1) At a higher level, the union
provides faculty an additional channel to learn and make an influence on
the decisions/changes occurring at NIU, ensuring transparency, fairness and
good governance on matters that are important to the university
community and our future. (2) On an individual level, unionizing empowers
faculty and employees to stand up for fairness in our contract and working
conditions, protecting women, minority and any other individuals from
differential treatment in various aspects of our work.
