UW Bargaining Update

uw70114-colaUniversity of Washington. The UW Bargaining Team met with management Aug. 6. The team held discussions on Article 23 – Corrective Action and Article 9 – Union Activities.

The team decided to say “thanks but no thanks” to management’s proposals on Articles 9, 40, 56 and 59.

And management essentially had not counterproposals to our team’s proposals.

The team also signed tentative agreement n 28 articles that neither side wished to change from the current contract.

Both sides agreed to cancel the scheduled Aug. 18 session because the UW’s special salary survey won’t be ready by then. The team will add a session in September.

The team’s goal is still to reach final agreement on the entire contract early enough for a series of information meetings before the ratification vote.

The next UW bargaining session is Aug. 27.
