After over a year of negotiating, we’ve reached tentative agreements with the University on many issues. In recent months, the CPW-UAW bargaining committee has been working hard to find a path to completing a fair agreement with Columbia–even as the administration tries again to pressure us by threatening to withdraw proposed pay increases if we do not reach agreement before July 1. We continue to believe a fair agreement is possible, however, the administration’s intransigence in certain areas and their approach to the negotiations continue to present major obstacles.

Join us for a virtual Town Hall on June 25 for the latest updates about where things stand, including progress made and continuing challenges, and to join the discussion about how we can show Columbia that we want a strong and fair first contract.

Register here for the virtual Town Hall on Thursday, June 25th at 1:00pm.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

In solidarity,

CPW-UAW Bargaining Committee
