The attached correspondence was sent to Representatives Meng, Nadler, Espaillat, Ocasio-Cortez, and Lowey from CPW-UAW. In an ongoing effort to  bargain a fair first contract by April 6th 2020, we asked these elected officials to support our efforts to secure a fair agreement. 

Despite the ongoing crisis with COVID-19, both the union and the university have agreed to continue to bargain and we are committed to putting in every effort to reach a fair contract. We believe that if Columbia does so as well, we can be done in a timely manner.
