Columbia Postdoctoral Workers (CPW-UAW) represents anyone who holds a postdoctoral position or is classified as an Associate Research Scientist/Scholar. Postdocs at Columbia are typically classified into five main job titles, which we refer to collectively as “PARs”: Postdoctoral Research Scientist/Scholar, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, or an Associate Research Scientist/Scholar. The union includes all Columbia University employees who fall under these job titles as well as other titles that are determined to fit our unit definition.
- I heard CPW-UAW filed for an election with the National Labor Relations Board. What does that mean?
- I heard an administrator say if we unionize and negotiate pay increases, we might have fewer jobs overall.
