Teamsters win strongest-ever CX Tentative Agreement!

Because we stood together as Teamsters and showed our solidarity through worksite actions statewide, our CX Unit Bargaining Team was able to move the University of California to our strongest tentative agreement ever! It took nearly a year of negotiations and 47 formal bargaining sessions, but we did it and our Bargaining Team unanimously recommends a YES vote in the coming weeks to guarantee the following benefits.

The Tentative Agreement includes:

  • 6% raise this year, retroactive to July 1, 2022*
  • 23.4% average compounded raises over four years.*
  • 3% across-the-board plus one step raise effective July 1 of 2023, 2024, and 2025*
  • Step raises averaging 2.2% statewide for non-probationary, career employees who are not at the top of their pay scale. Non-probationary career employees who are or will be stepped out will receive a lump sum equal to the difference between the top two steps.*
  • Wage steps are NOT based on merit or performance.*
  • $3,000 lump sum payment for non-probationary career employees (pro-rated for part-timers)
  • $50 per pay period bilingual pay for medical center workers certified and designated by the University
  • Daily overtime pay now available after 8 hours worked in a regular 8-hour shift and double pay after 12 hours
  • Shift differential pay improved for both campus and medical center employees
  • Out of class language improved
  • $1,000 longevity bonus for CX Teamsters who have 20 years of full-time service at the UC
  • “Me too” language that guarantees CX Unit will receive the equivalent if non-represented UC workers received a higher annual percentage raise in 2023-2025
  • Meet and confer at each location for additional steps for Library Assistants, and AA4s at UC Davis
  • Much, much more to be detailed in the coming days–stay tuned!!

*Across-the-board and step increases are for all CX members with the exception of those working at LBNL, which has a reopener for wage negotiations to start by October 30 2022. Dispatcher step increases continue to be driven by existing agreement, which will now be incorporated into the contract.

"We won this historic Teamsters contract because our team fought hard and our members stood together and took powerful action. We won significant across-the-board raises, guaranteed step raises to move workers up their pay range, a well-earned bonus, daily overtime, longevity pay, bilingual pay, and other important language improvements that strengthen our rights. With our actions and solidarity over this campaign, we've shown the University that we are Teamster strong!"
