We are excited to be bargaining again in Studebaker room 207. We encourage everyone to come to the session for a first-hand view of the bargaining process and the administration’s positions on the topics we have proposed would be covered in our first contract.
We are now in our 9th month of bargaining for our first contract. We have proposed what we believe to be a complete set of articles covering the improvements postdocs and Associate Research Scientists have expressed are important through bargaining surveys filled out by a majority of researchers.
We are continuing to have constructive dialogue about several key areas of concern with the University, most notably Non-Discrimination, bullying, Health and Safety, and International Researchers Rights. We will meet soon in a break out committee to discuss our healthcare proposal. The University’s team has yet to respond to our economic proposals and has not made a counter to our compensation proposal.
We hope to make progress on these important issues in the sessions scheduled for the rest of the year. Please RSVP if you would like to attend a bargaining session.
