Fill out the Academic Researcher bargaining survey

All 48,000 UAW academic employees at UC (Academic Researchers, Postdocs, Teaching Assistants, Tutors, Readers, and Student Researchers) will be negotiating new union contracts in 2022. This is an unprecedented opportunity for Academic Researchers to work together with other UAW members at UC to advance our shared goals. The bargaining survey is an important first step in the process. Please take a few minutes to fill out the survey today.

In solidarity,
