New Contract 

For Immediate Release UAW Local 2865 Membership Overwhelmingly Ratifies New Contract with UC Berkeley - UAW Local 2865 announced today that academic student employees (ASEs) have voted overwhelmingly to ratify the tentative agreement that was reached on Tuesday, December 2 between the UAW and the University of California (UC). The vote was 1,682 in favor and 26 opposed. "We are hopeful that this contract signals a new era of productive and cooperative labor relations between the Union and the University" said Rajan Mehta, a UAW Bargaining Team member from UC Berkeley. Key features of the contract, effective through September 30, 2006, include: All ASEs will receive a 1.5% minimum wage increase effective January 1, 2004, including a retroactive increase for Fall ASEs. Additionally, all ASEs will get a 1.5% general wage increase every time the senate faculty gets a merit increase, and will also receive any additional general wage increase given to the faculty. Graduate student ASEs working at least 25% time will continue to receive a 100% remission of their education, registration, and health fees, despite the sharp increases in student fees and health care costs this year. Any future increases in these fees during the term of the contract will be covered. The rights and benefits of summer session ASEs will be greatly improved, as they will receive near equivalent compensation as ASEs during the academic year, and gain rights that they were previously exempted from, such as workload protections, appointment notification, and appointment security. The Union will be provided access to new employee orientations to inform all ASEs about their rights and benefits under the contract, and all new employees will receive a membership form when they sign other employment forms. UAW Local 2865 represents over 11,000 ASEs working as Teaching Assistants, Readers and Tutors at the eight general teaching campuses of UC. Contact: Rajan Mehta (510) 549-3863
