UW bargaining update 2/20/14

The bargaining team for the University of Washington, covering the main UW campus in Seattle, Harborview Medical Center, UW Medical Center, UW Bothell, UW Tacoma and the Consolidated Laundry met Feb. 19. The team reports:

“We have now gone over every proposal we received from the membership, as well as those from the other higher education locals, and ideas from Council 28.

“We have nearly completed putting those ideas into contract proposal language. The team will meet March 5 for continued proposal drafting.

“We have requested a start date for talks from the UW, but have yet to receive anything beyond agreement that talks are serious and we need to start soon. We will be ready as soon as they reply with dates.

“We need our members to be ready too. Watch for information on contract kick-off events, and if you want to know first and fastest please register with your NON WORK email at: http://www.wfse.org/collective-bargaining/uwhmc-bargaining-team/ so you can be added to the update list.

“You’ll know as soon as the information comes out!

“Oh and PLEASE share this with coworkers, post it on union boards, email or share it on social networks.

“In Solidarity — Your Local 1488 contract team.”
