University of California
UPTE-CWA members at the University of California voted overwhelmingly to ratify new contracts that cover 16,000 Healthcare, Research, and Technical workers. The contracts, which run through 2024, protect the world-class pension plan that has served UC workers for decades and provide total raises of 29-32%. Other victories include protections on parking and healthcare rates, daily overtime pay, and equity raises for many job titles across the university system.
Over two years of negotiations and mobilization, UPTE-CWA members waged five powerful strikes and countless other actions in order to reach this milestone. Without their dedication, this victory could not have been possible.
