Two years of tough negotiations and plenty of demonstrations of solidarity from UC Davis Teamsters have won us an incredible first-time contract.

  • 11.3% compounded wage increase this year, implemented by July 2023.
  • Shift and hazard pay differentials added and improved ($2.50/hr – Swing shift; $3.25/hr – Graveyard; $1.75/hr – Weekend differential).
  • UC must use progressive discipline process before terminating an employee, except for cases of severe misconduct.
