The NIU Civil Service workforce has seventeen unions representing a wide range of classifications campus wide as well as each of the regional campuses. The unions are the exclusive representative for the classifications recognized in the collective bargaining agreements, specifically regarding wages, hours, and conditions of employment.
Employee and Labor Relations has developed a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) to assist in answering questions from newer union members, as well as regular questions from current union members, regarding how membership in a union affects their employment at NIU.
