A University of Illinois professor says faculty members on the Urbana-Champaign campus, who are against the formation of a union, deserve a voice.
Nick Burbules, who is a professor in the College of Education, says he does not support a union for faculty members.
Burbules say he supports unions for many workers and that overall, unions have done great things, but the question is whether it's the right model for faculty on the Urbana-Champaign campus.
He says there is only one voice being represented right now, and that's the pro-union voice.
But he says the university has become a great one, without a union for faculty.
Burbules says some of the UI's best professors have said they'll leave if they are forced to join a union.
