[The following was approved on May 23, 1996, in accordance with provisions set forth in SIU Board of Trustees 2 Policies C.]

The university and its employees are subject to the provisions of the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Act (115 Ill. Comp. Stat. 5/1). The purpose of this act is "to regulate labor relations between educational employers and educational employees, including the designation of educational employee representatives, negotiation of wages, hours and other conditions of employment and resolution of disputes arising under collective bargaining agreements."

The university will negotiate those items appropriate for collective bargaining with any person, group of persons, organization acting on behalf of any employee or group of employees when such a person, group, or agency has met the requirements of the Illinois Education Labor Relations Act. No person, group of persons, or organizations will be permitted

  1. to solicit membership in any organization from university employees during the employees' working hours;
  2. to solicit funds or engage in union activities on university premises during working hours for the particular work location, except in the settlement of grievances.

No permission to solicit will be granted outside the terms of the Board of Trustees policy governing "Use of University Property for Fund-Raising, Canvassing, Soliciting, Vending, and Allied Advertising" (6 Policies, C.2).

Employees with questions regarding their rights and obligations under the law are advised to contact Labor Relations, Human Resources.
