Visiting Academic Professionals at UIUC are protected by a contract that expires on August 15, 2022. A bargaining team will be representing VAPs to secure a renewed, even better contract. Please fill out the following survey so the bargaining team can best represent everyone’s interests: https://go.illinois.edu/VAPsurvey
And remember, only members will get to vote on the contract. If you aren’t a member, sign up today! (When it asks you for classification, please choose Higher Education — Education Support Professional, and for membership type choose Higher Ed- ESP Quarter Time. This does not correspond to your work status as full-time of not, it relates solely to our dues level)
