On April 22, 2020, representatives of the University attended the thirty-eighth bargaining session with the union committee that represents Postdocs and ARSs. The bargaining session was held via video conference.
The Union presented the University with revised proposals on Compensation and Insurance, to be considered together; Appointments, International Researchers, and Professional Development, to be considered as a package; and Non-Discrimination. The parties discussed the revised proposals, and the University presented a revised proposal on Union Access, Rights and Activity.
The Union and the University reached a tentative agreement on Appointments and Professional Development, to be formalized at the next bargaining session.
