The bargaining team has decided to ask members to vote to authorize a strike. This would allow the bargaining team to call a strike if circumstances justify. A 2/3 majority of voters is necessary to authorize the bargaining committee to call for a strike.

Voting will begin tomorrow (April 13) and continue through April 21. Members may either vote online, or in person on campus. All votes will remain anonymous.

Online Voting

Members will receive a unique link to an online ballot via email tomorrow morning. Please make sure that is in your accepted senders list, and look for “UAW4121SAV – Link to online ballot” in the subject line. If you do not receive an email link by 10:30 am tomorrow, please email with your name and department affiliation to request an online ballot. The online system will close at 11:00 pm PDT on April 21.

In-person Voting

A polling station will be open in the Mary Gates Hall Commons during the following times:

  • 4/13: 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
  • 4/14: 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
  • 4/15: 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
  • 4/20: 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
  • 4/21: 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm
