The bargaining and grievance committee has recommended ratification of the Regents' bargaining proposal (link). You will see that it is an outrageous offer: just wages are included, with a 1.1% increase to our base pay. ALL other benefits are CUT. It is reprehensible that the University is putting forward this contract proposal and defending it in bargaining. ... Read more...
