UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS
Personnel Matters, Urbana
Chancellor Aiken reported on the status of several major searches on the Urbana campus. Included among these were: vice chancellor for research — this is about to begin; vice chancellor for administration — this is just getting started; dean, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences — this is just underway; and dean, School of Social Work — this is under discussion.
Collective Bargaining Negotiations
Dr. Bazzani updated the board members on the status of collective bargaining negotiations with the Service Employees International Union on both campuses. Each local of this union at the two campuses is in the process of negotiating a new contract. The major issue on the table at present is the percentage increase in salary for these groups. The union is asking for more than the percentage available in the State appropriation for salary increases for Fiscal Year 1994.
Recommendations for Settlements
Mr. Higgins discussed two recommendations for settlement. These were Caldwell v. Crowell, involving failure to diagnose an intra-cranial mass as a brain abscess resulting in partial paralysis of the patient, and Vallejo v. University ofIllinois Hospital, a case involving a newborn with a disability.
