Bargaining Update #4

We had two more bargaining sessions with the university on October 5 & 6. We put forward a number of proposals about economic and flexibility issues, and backed them up with your stories about the hardships you face every day. NYU listened to what we had to say but were not encouraging on many issues. 

What we are experiencing at the bargaining table is what unions are facing all across the country: a downward pressure on wages and benefits. But with your support and with your stories, we will continue to push back against NYU.


Come to the general membership meeting on Tuesday, October 18. It will be a dedicated contract bargaining meeting where we will have the latest updates for you. Ask us questions and give us feedback. Find out what you can do to help. This is your union and your contract!

Come out in person to show your support! Our next bargaining session is Wednesday, October 12. We would love to see you in the lobby of 7 E. 12th Street when we finish our session. NYU's negotiators will see you too, and that will give them something to think about.
