2015-2017 Contract Ratified by our Membership

After an incredible contract campaign that won key demands from the University Administration, we counted our members' ballots last night on whether to accept the tentative agreement. The members of AFSCME Local 3800 and Local 3801 (Clerical, UMD) voted by majority to ratify the Tentative Agreement for 2015-2017.

U of MN Clerical Contract Negotiations Update: Tentative Agreement Reached

Contract Negotiation Update: Tentative Agreement Reached

Tentative Agreement Reached:

For the past six months, our clerical bargaining committee repeatedly heard from the University administration that they had budgeted only 0.5% for raises for clerical workers, that two weeks of paid parental leave was sufficient for our families, and that they weren't interested in discussing, much less addressing any of our other priority issues. Finally, yesterday brought a breakthrough. 
Management's committee came to the table yesterday, December 10 with proposals to address our top priorities and our need for raises and respect. Yesterday afternoon, our clerical bargaining committee reached a tentative agreement with the U of MN, and we are recommending approval by our membership.

Negotiation Update #7 - U still has not moved on our priority issues

On Tuesday, September 29, our bargaining team met with management for the seventh round of negotiations. Our members joined the negotiations session to give their personal testimonies in support of our top four negotiation priorities: 1} dignified wages; 2} parental leave equity; 3} restoration of the Regent’s Scholarship; and 4} addressing workplace bullying. We left the bargaining table with one small agreement but did not move further on other negotiations and are now moving to mediation.
