UAW 5810

11,000 Postdocs & Academic Researchers fighting for better working conditions at the University of California.


At every opportunity, our union endeavors to uphold equity for all. We see our contracts as powerful tools we can use to ensure that academic workers are valued and empowered to fulfill the mission of UC’s research enterprise, and we strive to exercise our collective power to win economic and social justice at UC and beyond, because we truly believe that an injury to one is an injury to all.

By Members, For Members

Postdocs and Academic Researchers run all aspects of UAW 5810 including organizing our colleagues and serving as members of the bargaining team and elected statewide and campus officers.

Sustainable Research Future

Through our union, Postdocs and ARs elevate the academic researcher experience  by negotiating standard-bearing collective bargaining agreements that improve our pay, benefits, rights, and protections.
