Updates from the PRO/UAW Organizing Committee

Updates from the PRO/UAW Organizing Committee

****Here is the latest action taken by the PostDoc Union Organizing Committee****.
July 2, 2008

Fellow Postdocs,

This week PRO/UAW filed our unionization petition with the Public Employment Relations Board (PERB) of California. A majority of all University of California Postdocs have signed up for the Union! First of all, thank you for your support! You made this possible!

Second, we'd like to remind you of the process from here on out:

PERB will count the cards and then certify our Union when they have determined that we do indeed have a majority of all Postdocs supporting the Union. PERB will be the only entity reviewing the cards; the university will not see the union cards.

Hello Grads-Say Yes to Union!

Here is the PostDoc Wheel of PRO/UAW, this is like the Wheel of Dhamma of Lord Buddha's that is a symbol of justice and liberation. The latest news from PRO/UAW is very promising to the 5000 or more postdocs in different campuses of University of California System.

The Union for Postdoctoral Researchers at the University of California
PRO/UAW is the Union for over 5,000 Postdoctoral Researchers at the University of California. By signing up a majority of Postdocs, we can exercise our legal rights to bargain with UC. Postdoc representatives we choose will survey us to determine priorities and will then negotiate a contract with UC. We can negotiate for improvements in wages, hours, benefits, and terms and conditions of employment. Postdocs will then have an opportunity to democractically approve the agreement that UC and our bargaining team reach, before it becomes a binding contract.
