How might a union affect merit pay at NIU?

Typical faculty union contracts provide for merit pay as well as for acrossthe-
board minimums for all. For example, at SIU and WIU, union contracts
provide that about half of the annual funds for faculty salary increases go for merit
rewards, and faculty unions have negotiated added monetary incentives to reach
agreed-on institutional goals.
