New Employee Orientations for Postdocs and Academic Researchers

UAW 5810 holds new employee orientations, which are an excellent opportunity to meet your colleagues and learn more about your rights and protections under our union contract, including your pay, how to enroll in health benefits and what to do if you encounter any workplace issues. We’ll also cover how your union works and why it’s important to sign up as a dues-paying member.

Each UC campus holds a new employee orientation at least once a month which includes a required 30-minute union orientation by Postdocs and Academic Researchers. If you are unable to attend the campus orientation, please fill out the form below to schedule a make-up time for your required union orientation. All union orientations are on paid time and you are relieved of other duties to attend.
