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.
