Media Statement: Regarding SEIU and INA Negotiation Updates

Statement from Michael D. Amiridis, Chancellor, University of Illinois Chicago; and Michael Zenn, CEO, University of Illinois Hospital & Clinics

As our colleagues from the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 73 and the Illinois Nurses Association (INA) continue their strikes, we are encouraged that discussions with both unions are scheduled to resume today (SEIU) and tomorrow (INA) with the support of federal mediators.

We are hopeful that through continued dialogue we will be able to reach fair and fiscally responsible multiyear contract agreements with all the represented parties.

We remain committed to addressing key issues and believe much can be resolved through further dialogue. We are prepared to continue good faith bargaining as long as it takes.

We value and respect all our colleagues and caregivers, and we look forward to the possibility of swift and fair resolutions.
