Bargaining

Contract and Impact Bargaining

Collective bargaining is one of the most important functions of any union. Through collective bargaining, our union is able to secure better working conditions and protections for our bargaining unit members.

Currently, our union is bargaining on two fronts.

Salary Bargaining: Financial uncertainty in 2020 triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic caused the administration and UAOSU to postpone salary increase negotiations until the spring 2021. You can find all the information about these negotiations here. You can see our members’ bargaining priorities here.

Campus Re-Opening Bargaining: The university administration’s plan to return our bargaining unit to onsite work in fall 2021 has triggered impact bargaining. This means that our union is negotiating the impact of this change to our members’ working conditions. You can find all the information about these negotiations here. You can see our members’ bargaining priorities here.
