We know how hard you work and we appreciate all you do for UC. We have been trying for almost two years to negotiate an agreement with AFSCME leaders that recognizes your contributions and dedication with guaranteed pay raises and excellent benefits. We think our offers have been very fair, and that you deserved the chance to vote on them.

We will continue to do everything we can to get you a fair contract as soon as possible, but an agreement requires compromise from both sides

We don’t want you to miss any more money!

You deserve a contract!
