Bargaining Update for UPTE-represented Staff

UPTE agrees to resume negotiations in June —
it’s time for a deal!

After months of no meaningful bargaining and multiple strikes, UPTE agreed to return to the bargaining table with UC next month:

  • June 6: Bargaining for Healthcare Professionals (HX unit)
  • June 17-18: Bargaining for Research and Technical Employees (RX-TX units)

We believe you have waited long enough for a contract, and that it is time for a deal , and for you to get to vote on UC’s offers.

As we have demonstrated throughout negotiations with UPTE, we believe you deserve the following:

  • GUARANTEED YEARLY PAY INCREASES that fairly recognize your contributions and are consistent with what other employees are receiving.
  • EXCELLENT HEALTH & RETIREMENT BENEFITS for you and your family at similar rates as other UC employees. UC’s benefits are among the most generous in the market.
  • The JOB PROTECTIONS that a multi-year contract provides.

It’s time you had a contract,
and got TO VOTE on UC’s offers!
