At the January 2014 Board of Trustees meeting, University leaders decided to explore supplemental retirement benefit programs that could help minimize the impact for faculty and staff. The plan being considered will not fully offset the benefits we have lost, but they represent the University’s first and best efforts at repairing the damage.<br /><br />If legislators do not support our current efforts, we may not be able to secure the supplemental retirement benefits under consideration. It would also set a precedent, making any subsequent effort by the University to secure supplemental retirement benefits that much more difficult.<br /><br />We want Illinois State legislators to support University efforts to secure supplemental retirement benefits, and we are providing you an opportunity to voice your support for the supplemental retirement benefits by signing our petition.<br /><br />Your participation in this petition is voluntary. This petition is open to all employees and annuitants who have paid into the State Universities Retirement System (SURS) including Academic Professionals, Faculty, and Civil Servants; as well as their colleagues, family, friends and supporters. If you wish to review and / or sign the petition, please click the link below:<br /><br />https://uofi.uic.edu/fb/sec/3250911<br /><br />IF YOU WISH TO REVIEW AND / OR SIGN THE PETITION, PLEASE DO SO NOW. THE PETITION WILL CLOSE ON MAY 2nd AT 5:00 PM.<br /><br />It should take about 10 minutes or less to review and / or sign the petition. While at work, you may review and / or sign the petition before work, after work, or during any normally scheduled break (such as lunch) using your work computer.<br /><br />Please note: University and Campus Human Resources, the Office of the Chancellor, and the Ethics Office have all been made aware of the petition. Advocating for support of the University of Illinois and employees is not prohibited by university or campus policies or the State Officials and Employees Ethics Act. Employees should exercise care to ensure these activities do not negatively impact fulfillment of employment responsibilities.<br /><br />This petition is being coordinated by UIC’s Academic Professional Advisory Committee (APAC).<br /><br />Best Regards,<br /><br /> <br />Michael Moss.<br />Chair, the Academic Professional Advisory Committee (APAC).<br />mmoss2@uillinois.edu.<br /> massmail http://www.uic.edu/uic MassmailFeed Wed, 23 Apr 2014 16:19:16 -0500 Wed, 23 Apr 2014 16:19:16 -0500 "Paid Research Study" Dr. Heide Klumpp (PhD) at The University of Illinois at Chicago is conducting a research study on depression and is looking for volunteers to participate. <br /><br />You may be eligible if you: <br />1.
