After thirty-two days of striking, the UAW Academic Student Employee and Student Researcher bargaining teams have reached tentative agreements on a contract with the University of California.
“These tentative agreements include major pay increases and expanded benefits which will improve the quality of life for all members of the bargaining unit,” says UAW President Ray Curry. “Our members stood up to show the university that academic workers are vital to UC’s success. They deserve nothing less than a contract that reflects the important role they play and the reality of working in cities with extremely high costs of living.”
Members will vote on ratifying the agreements next week. “UAW members at UC stood together for equity and a fair contract. The support poured in from day one and continues to today,” adds Region 6 Director Mike Miller. “We look forward to hearing from members during the upcoming ratification process.”
