UCATS and NYU Reach Tentative Agreement

Late last night, the UCATS bargaining team reached a tentative agreement with NYU. It is important to note that there are still details to iron out before the proposed agreement is presented to the UCATS Executive Council.

Under the by-laws governing the Local, the Executive Council must review, evaluate and finally vote on whether or not to present the proposal to the membership for ratification. If the Council decides to present the proposal to the membership, the proposed contract will be distributed during a General Membership Meeting early in January. The purpose of the meeting will be to review the proposed contract and answer questions about it.

Following the General Membership Meeting, a ratification vote will take place by mail, supervised and conducted by the American Arbitration Association. We believe this will take place later in January.

Bargaining update

We went back to the bargaining table with NYU last night, and have scheduled an additional bargaining meeting for next Thursday, December 8.

We are hosting a town hall meeting for all UCATS members on Wednesday, December 7 at 5:30 PM in Vanderbilt Hall, Room 210. One of the purposes of the meeting is to update everyone on the status of contract negotiations.

We are up to 420 hard-copy signatures on our petition for a fair contract, and the online version is doing even better, with over 700 signatures as of this morning.

Have you signed the petition yet? If not, please do it now.

Please feel free to share the petition on your Facebook page or other social media outlet of choice!
