We had our first bargaining session with Columbia! 

Check out the ‘Contract Negotiations’ tab for more details

Our bargaining goals have been ratified by 98% and, with this strong support of CPW-UAW members, our elected bargaining committee presented our goals to the Columbia administration in our first bargaining session on February 25th.

As we move forward, the bargaining committee, in collaboration with Postdoc/ARS working groups, will prepare specific proposals that address each of these goals using feedback from bargaining surveys filled out by a majority of Postdocs and Associate Research Scientists. Please, continue to send any additional feedback, to guide us as we develop concrete contract language on all of these topics through negotiations with Columbia.

New to Columbia? sign up for the Union! Participation from Postdocs and Associate Research Scientists all across campus is what will give us the power to negotiate a strong first contract with Columbia.
