In a stunning move at our October 12 bargaining session, the university asked the UCATS bargaining team to agree to strip the constitutionally guaranteed rights of members to seek relief for discrimination with the EEOC. This suggestion is particularly alarming given the recent EEOC Consent Decree at NYU.
What was no surprise is that the university is proposing that you pay more for your health insurance coverage; how much more, they have not said.
Some good news: In a show of support for the UCATS bargaining team, members assembled in the lobby of 7 E. 12th Street last night to "greet" university negotiators as they left the building.
