Please share your thoughts on bullying, harassment and discrimination at Columbia.
In our last bargaining session on Thursday, we did not reach any new tentative agreements, but had more constructive discussion around Compensation, Appointments/Reappointments, Leaves, Vacation, Intellectual Property, Grievance and Arbitration and No Strikes. At this stage, we see every session as critical time to discuss our differences and to keep working toward a satisfactory agreement. But since we do still have a number of major differences, we have asked the administration team to commit substantial time to bargaining sessions in the coming weeks so that we have sufficient time to find a path to a fair agreement by April 6. Please stay tuned for ways Postdoc and Associate researchers can get involved to help us build momentum to reach a fair first contract.
We have another bargaining session scheduled for tomorrow, March 9, and will provide a more detailed update after that session. Please rsvp here if you would like to attend.
