Operating Staff, 1931+
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description: This series documents the activities of the Operating Staff and the organizations that represent civil service employees.  In addition to Operating Staff Council records, the record group contains material from the Illinois State University Civil Service System (SUCSS), the Clerical Union Organizing Committee, the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), and the NIU Credit Union. In 1961 the Non-Academic Staff Council began composing and distributing a monthly newsletter called The Civil Word.  In 1970 it was succeeded by People, a joint effort of the newly-christened Operating Staff Council and the NIU Personnel Office. In January 1995 this newsletter became the Northern Staff News.  Issues of Northern Staff News and Operating Staff Council meeting minutes are regularly added to the record group.  Researchers may also consult the records of the President's Office for further information on the operating staff.
