University of California PostDocs Union negotiation Updates!

To find out the exact details of the ongoing events, check the link!.

PRO/UAW Bargaining Our bargaining team continues to negotiate for a historic first contract with UC. The support and participation of a majority of Postdocs has been critical leading up to and throughout the bargaining process.

We have reached tentative agreement with the University on most of the topics raised in bargaining, which are summarized below. We would not have been able to reach agreement on these topics without the consistent support and participation of a majority of Postdocs across the UC system. These agreements are tentative (see our agreement with UC on bargaining groundrules for more information on tentative agreements) until we reach a final overall agreement with the University, at which point Postdocs will have an opportunity to vote on whether to approve the final agreement as our first contract.

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.
