Open Letter of Support to APSCUF

Dear APSCUF Brothers and Sisters,
On behalf of the 20,000 members of the Service Employees International Union, Local 668, our officers, and myself, I would like to pledge our support to the 6,000 sisters and brothers who are members of the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties.

We stand with you in your fight for a fair contract with the employer.  The Pennsylvania higher education system delivers a quality and affordable education to those who seek to further their education in many fields.  Many of these institutions were founded as “teaching schools” to educate our future educators.  I believe that this strike is unfortunate and could have been avoided had the employer treated the faculty and staff fairly. However, this strike is also an opportunity to teach the current students and our future teachers that we must maintain the quality of our education system and that teachers have value in our society and must be compensated fairly.

Please know that today, tomorrow, and one more day after that, WE will stand strong with your rank and file members until a fair contract is won!

In Solidarity,

Tom Herman

President, SEIU Local 668
