Although the University has not announced a definite research ramp-up start date, we have heard numerous concerns from researchers who are expected to resume some amount of in-person work at Columbia next week, especially at CUIMC.

In our bargaining session today, university administrators said that while there is an evolving definition of what constitutes essential work in the context of city and state guidelines, the University wants any return to in-person work to be reasonable and voluntary.

Sincerely and in safe solidarity,
