Teamsters ratify powerful new CX contract!

After almost a year of bargaining, member actions, and worker organizing, CX Teamsters have ratified our strongest-ever Union contract!

Approximately 5,000 UC Teamsters voted over the past three weeks and 98.3% said YES! This overwhelming majority is a testament to the strength of our new contract, which guarantees across-the-board raises, annual step increases that are NOT based on merit/performance, ratification AND longevity lump sums, new language on bilingual pay at medical centers, major gains on overtime and more!

Per the agreement, UC is required to implement negotiated pay increases within 60 days of ratification. We will keep you posted on the pay dates for lump sum and retroactive increases once confirmed by the UC.

"We won this historic contract by standing together as Teamsters and taking action across the state, showing our unity and our strength. Every letter we sent to UC leaders, every comment we gave at Regents meetings, and every march held at campuses and medical centers across the state led to this: the strongest contract in the history of our unit, with unprecedented raises, benefits, and worker protections! When we fight, we win!"

UC has confirmed its intention to implement the raises and pay the lump sums and retro pay before Christmas. If you have questions about our raises or any of the benefits included in our new contract, contact your Union Rep today!
