UC seeks progress in contract negotiations with UPTE
Since bargaining began in mid-December, the University of California has been frustrated with the progress of negotiations with UPTE and believes that negotiations have yielded little movement toward a new contract covering 8,600 research and technical employees.
UC presented the Federated University Police Officers Association with a revised offer for a new four year contract on May 22, 2013. The revised offer would provide guaranteed wage increases each year for four years, with the first 3% wage increase effective upon ratification of the contract. In the University’s original offer the 3% increase was to take effect in July. In practical terms this means that if FUPOA voted to ratify this new offer on June 7th for example, the 3% wage increase would take effect on that date.
