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

Approximately 5,000 UC Teamsters voted on our contract 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.
