UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS -- Other unions on campus support the striking workers. The Campus Faculty Association started a food drive and fundraiser last week. They collected about $500 so far.

Organizers put a donation bin at the campus YMCA and plan to put another at Common Ground in Urbana Monday. Union members say UI workers are all in the same boat.

Some Graduate Employees Organization members picketed with the unions. They say campus workers need to stick together and they can all benefit from helping each other.
