We’re excited to let you know that the Connecticut State Labor Board has certified that a majority of postdocs signed up for our union! This comes after months of productive conversation with the university’s administration that resulted in a neutrality agreement which commits UConn to recognize and start bargaining with our union based upon this certification of majority support by the labor board.This means that we officially have a union, and that future changes to our employment cannot be made without our input.
We look forward to starting bargaining. If you have not done so yet, please fill out a bargaining survey here so our bargaining committee, whom we elect soon, can know what our priorities and goals should be.
Please also join us for a lunch meeting on Friday, August 3, 1-2pm at Homer Babbidge Library in the Classroom of 1947 Room, to discuss our next steps. Lunch will be provided, RSVP here.
