As reported by Fight Back News Service on March 20, workers in the Patient Access department at UIC were locked out of their workplace for wearing t-shirts that opposed a recent decision to nearly double their workloads.

On Tuesday, March 24, an email was sent to the employees in the department informing them that they would be paid for the time they were locked out.

SEIU Local 73 will still go forward with plans to file an Unfair Labor Practice charge against the employer for denying the workers’ right to wear their union t-shirts.

Here is a video of workers and the UIC-ABC (United In Campaign Against Budget Cuts) picketing outside the department on March 20.
