The state labor board has certified that a majority of ~5,000 UC Academic Researchers (Project Scientists, Specialists, Professional Researchers, and Coordinators of Public Programs) support joining our union as a second bargaining unit! While they wait for the certification process to complete, ARs are preparing to start bargaining. This a huge win for all researchers at UC, and represents another big step in our movement to improve the rights and working conditions of all academic employees in the US! For more information check out the Academic Researchers United website, or send us an email if you would like to get involved or will be transitioning to an AR position yourself.
