Add comment on:On Brink Of A Statewide Strike, UAW Wins Unprecedented Contract Victory
via UAW 2865
After nearly a week of bargaining late into the night as a third system-wide strike loomed, the 13,000 workers of the UC Student-Worker Union UAW 2865 reached a labor agreement with UC management on June 3 at 7pm. The agreement concludes a year of intense negotiations which traversed a deteriorating union management relationship involving 2 system-wide strikes and now 2 barely averted strikes. The agreement for labor peace includes class size provisions new to the UCs as well as rights for undocumented students and for gender-neutral bathrooms that will set precedent for the labor movement nationwide. The UC Student-Worker Union, which represents front line educators across the UC system, will vote on ratification over the next weeks.
