Postdoc Bargaining 2021

Bargaining is the process by which we negotiate a new contract with the university that will determine our working conditions (wages, benefits, etc.). By demonstrating to the University of California administration that Postdocs are an organized majority that will pressure the university through collective actions until our demands are met, we can win a contract that builds on our previous victories and makes UC a more equitable research environment. 

 

Get Involved

Success in bargaining in large part depends on what takes place outside the bargaining room. To win at the bargaining table, the involvement and activism of every union member is critical. We need to be united and committed to our bargaining demands to ensure that we get a fair and strong contract. In the coming months, you can directly contribute to winning a strong contract by:

UAW Local 5810 - The Union of Postdocs and Academic Researchers

Lorenzo and Karen do the same work on the same research project, with the same responsibilities, in the same lab, under the same supervisor. Raise your hand if you think they should have the same rights! Then sign here: http://bit.ly/SRUpetition #SameResearchSameRights

UAW 5810 opposes the DOJ’s racist & discriminatory China Initiative, which began under Trump. It fuels racial profiling and anti-Asian hate, & unfairly targets Chinese visa applicants. Excluding qualified researchers from US universities harms research.
