Our next monthly membership meeting is Thursday, February 9th starting at 5:30 p.m. in Sieg 134.

Please attend to discuss proposed demands to UW!

UAW 4121 members’ concerns regarding the impact on them of recent events stemming from the Trump Administration’s Executive Orders and resulting Policy Changes by the UW administration has prompted the Local 4121 bargaining committee to begin preparing demands to the University to add important protections to the collective bargaining agreement. At our next meeting we will discuss proposed initial demands, based on feedback we received through recent work group meetings and other conversations.  We will also send an email survey for your additional feedback.  All members will have the opportunity to review and vote on these demands before we present them to the University.

The proposed agenda for the meeting is as follows:

  1. Approve Agenda
  2. Approve Minutes
  3. Working Group Reports:
  4. Discussion of Proposed Bargaining Demands
  5. Adjourn

Any member who would like to propose additional agenda items or submit materials for the meeting is welcome to email uaw4121@uaw4121.org by 5pm on Wednesday, February 8. All members in good standing are encouraged to attend, and new members may sign up to join the union at the meeting.

As always children are welcome: please email uaw4121@uaw4121.org by 12:00 noon on Wednesday (2/8) if you need childcare and we will ensure it is provided.

Also mark your calendars for a national day of action on February 9th — more details to follow!
