|Dear UAW 4121 member,
The results from the vote to ratify the tentative agreement recommended by the bargaining committee have been tallied and are as follows:
- ACCEPT the contract: 2250 (90%)
- REJECT the contract: 157 (6%)
- ABSTAINED votes: 98 (4%)
- Total Votes: 2505
Because a majority of members voted to accept, the new contract takes effect immediately. Wage increases will go into effect on July 1, and changes to our Lifewise GAIP benefits will go into effect at the start of the new plan year in September.
Union members will continue organizing across campus to improve our working and living conditions, both in preparation for our next negotiations and to make concrete changes in between. To achieve this will require the active participation of every member – to get involved, you can join your department organizing committee, topic-specific working groups, or reach out to an organizer to get plugged in. Fill out this short form to get involved in these areas and more, and an organizer will follow up with you soon! Also join the June 10 membership meeting to debrief and discuss how we will continue to improve life at UW for us all!
