Update on Day Five of Negotiations

On Friday, August 23rd, we returned to the negotiating table with the University Administration.  Watch a video update on the latest round of negotiations and find details on our ongoing organizing for affordable healthcare and a livable wage at the U.


Get involved in the fight for sliding scale premiums and livable wages at the U – Join the AFSCME Clerical Assembly!

The AFSCME Clerical Assembly is a committee of your clerical coworkers from all around the University (including the Twin Cities and Greater Minnesota) who have come together to strategize about contract negotiations, to gather input and disseminate information about negotiations to our coworkers, and to organize for a strong contract. Our talking papers on wages and health insurance, our online healthcare petition, and our rally to deliver our petitions were all developed by our Assembly members. Our efforts are currently focused on our sliding scale premium proposal and livable wages for all University workers.


The Assembly meets via videoconferencing and in person over the noon hour, as well as consulting online. We elect new members of the Assembly at each membership meeting – and we encourage all members who are interested to join us. If you have questions or would like to be Assembly please contact President Cherrene Horazuk at 612-940-0660 or or contact our local office at or 612-379-3918.
