The NLRB just finished counting ballots and we voted by an overwhelming 68% (729-yes to 339-no), in favor of Columbia Postdoctoral Workers-UAW as our union.

We will have more information soon regarding next steps in our campaign.  For now, we want to thank everyone who has participated in this historic election and for the last two years leading up to it.  Together, we have truly generated an unprecedented discussion of the importance and value of our work as postdocs and associate research scientists.

If you have not yet done so, please take a few minutes to fill out the postdoc union bargaining survey.

The more of us who participate in the bargaining survey, the more power we will have to negotiate a strong, representative contract with Columbia.

Thank you,

CPW-UAW Organizing Committee
