CSU Victory! A Strong Contract for 2017 -2019

April 25, 2018

Unit 1 unanimously ratified the tentative agreement with CSU.  We are waiting for the May Trustee meeting for the contract to be signed off on.  Pay letters will be sent to the controller in June.   Overall, the unit receives 3% retroactive to July 1, 2017, and 3% in both 2018 and 2019. 

In addition, unit members receive equity based on years of service to get them to the median of the new salary ranges by 2019.  It works out to be roughly an additional 8% for most of our unit members that have more than ten years of CSU service.  The equity pool of three percent was more than any other union was able to negotiate for its members.   We also have 2 new classifications that will help with recruitment and retention and allow the unit to grow.  In total, between 2014 and 2020, Unit 1 will realize a minimum of 19% and a maximum of close to 30%, depending on years of service.  This is quite substantial considering that between 1998 and 2014 there were 12 years where the unit received no raises.

CSU Bargaining Off to Good Start

May 10, 2017

Last week UAPD and CSU starting formal bargaining over terms and conditions of employment for our members in Unit 1.  UAPD and the bargaining team are optimistic about this round of bargaining.  After a State audit revealed unnecessary spending, and news articles publicized cuts in student services at the same time as the student fees were raised at some campuses, CSU has come into bargaining with an understanding that change is needed.

CSU is taking a proactive approach in addressing the issues around recruitment and retention.  They have been meeting with the UAPD Bargaining Team for the past year to establish new classifications, which will allow campuses to hire needed employees at a more competitive salary.  UAPD and CSU have tentatively agreed to two new classifications and some revisions to the original physician classification.  The team is still negotiating the salary ranges for each classification, as well as the implementation and the reclassification of the current unit members.   UAPD will communicate that information with the membership as soon as it becomes finalized.

Rights During an SEIU 1000 Strike

November 29, 2016

UAPD State-employed doctors have asked whether they have the right to strike alongside SEIU workers this coming Monday (aka sympathy strike).  The short answer is no, UAPD-represented doctors do not have the right to engage in a sympathy strike with another union at this time. 

UAPD-doctors who want to support their SEIU colleagues can join them on the picket lines on their own time (e.g. before or after work, or during vacation, CTO, annual leave).  You can read more about the SEIU strike plans here.
