It’s time to negotiate our contract! The current contract expires at the end of the summer, and the GAU has filed the paperwork to negotiate.
Over the summer, the research committee gathered the information we’ll need to present the strongest possible case for the wages, benefits and job security that our GAs deserve. Now, we’re moving into campaign mode, raising campus-wide awareness of the issues our GAs are facing. Meanwhile, the negotiating team is crafting the proposals we’ll be putting forward to our members for final approval before we take them to the table. We expect negotiations proper to begin sometime this fall.
Want to get involved in the process? Let us know! We are looking for some rank-and-file (that is, non-board) members to round out the negotiating team, and we’ll continue to need folks researching and planning throughout negotiations.
We’ll use this space to keep you updated! In the meantime, check out some of our issues pages:
