HIGHER EDUCATION UPDATE: Long Island U.’s Brooklyn Campus Revokes Health-Care Coverage for Striking Faculty. “Striking faculty members at Long Island University’s Brooklyn campus were informed by e-mail that their health-care coverage through the university has been canceled but that they could continue coverage at their own expense under the terms of the federal Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act, or Cobra. Brian Harmon, the campus’s public-relations director, said that the university stopped faculty members’ health-care coverage when the strike began, on Wednesday, the first day of fall classes, because it is permissible to do so under the institution’s policies on benefits. The coverage, he added, can be reestablished once the professors go back to their classrooms.”
