Welcome back to Winter Quarter. As you may have already seen, over the break the arbitrator rejected the University’s motion to reconsider the fees decision and ordered the UW to negotiate with us over how to implement the remedy he had ordered.

The Union and the University are now discussing possible ways to implement our award that are timely and fair, and that respect our contact and fee waivers.  Updates will be sent to members as these conversations with the University administration progress.

There will be an activist meeting this Friday (January 11) from 12-2 in Foege n130 to discuss next steps and plan for the beginning of Winter Quarter.

Contact the local if you want to be more involved or if you have any questions.
