Collective Bargaining Agreements

The University of Illinois Springfield recognizes the unions below as the exclusive bargaining agent for the employees covered under their respective Agreements.


Memorandum of Understanding for Performance Partnership Program (PPP), UPI Clerical, Technical, and Service


The University of Illinois Springfield believes in promoting a positive work environment for all employees.  As such, when an employee alleges that the University has violated the terms and conditions of employment contained in their respective bargaining agreement (i.e., committed a grievance), we encourage our supervisors and employees to attempt to resolve the matter between them. The University also understands that not all grievances can be resolved between the employee and supervisor.  Therefore, each of the collective bargaining agreements contains a grievance procedure that must be followed when an employee files a grievance.  Please reference the respective collective bargaining agreement for specific provisions of the grievance procedure.
