Contract Negotiations Update #3

On Monday, July 22, our clerical negotiating committee met with the University of Minnesota’s management committee.

The University stuck to their proposed general increase that averages 14 cents an hour per person. A 14 cent an hour (.75%) raise works out to $24.27 a month before taxes, and would not even cover the cost of one copay at the proposed higher rates. 

We said no to all of the University's proposals that would shift additional costs onto our members.

We also modified our proposed restructuring of the step system, from a maximum of 15 steps to reach the top of the wage scale, to a maximum of 17 steps.
