The majority of the Bargaining Committee is recommending a YES vote – you can find statements for and against ratification here.

Last week, more than 1000 members voted in a straw poll and demonstrated an investment in fighting to improve the administration’s last, best, and final offer. We returned to bargaining on Tuesday, and thanks to a powerful turnout to the Board of Regents meeting, moved management to offer additional increases to wages and the EPIC program. With those improvements, we tentatively agreed to the contract, pending formal ratification vote by members.

The final decision on the contract lies with membership — no contract can be final unless a majority of voting members decide to approve. This vote will close this Friday 5/28 at 5pm Pacific Time, and it’s critical that everyone vote to ensure the decision is as inclusive and representative as possible.
