Labor Relations News for Our Valued Employees

Choose language

Hello, and welcome to In the Know—your go-to place for current and reliable labor relations information. 

It’s important to note that negotiations for full contracts of our systemwide bargaining units with unions are conducted by the University of California, not local campuses or health systems.

We know you may hear differing information about the status of union negotiations from various sources, so we wanted to make sure you are equipped with facts and information about what UCSF, UCSF Health and the University of California are doing and why.

UCSF and UCSF Health have a truly exceptional work force. Thank you for all you contribute, every day, to help UCSF and UCSF Health achieve its mission of caring, healing, teaching and discovery.

We invite you to check this site often. Questions are welcomed.
