SEIU will be holding a rally demanding that the University save their steps. SEIU has an annual raise for all employees built into their contract called “steps.” The University wants to replace these annual raises with the general campus raise system. Campus raises and infrequent and lower than SEIU’s steps and would mean that employees would see fewer and smaller raises over their years at UIC. SEIU and the University are entering federal mediation in their negotiations in hopes they will be able to come to an agreement that keeps their steps in place without a strike.
