By June 28, 2023No Comments

Following a nine-day strike, UW postdocs and research scientists and engineers reached a tentative contract agreement with UW. The contract was ratified by 99% of members across the research and engineer and postdoc units.

UAW says that the new terms are “substantial improvements” to existing provisions. Key features of the agreement include secured minimum wage pay, increased childcare funding, improved support for international scholars, expanded accommodations for disabled union members, stronger resources to address discrimination and harassment, and better transportation options.
