UCATS reached a tentative agreement with NYU for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement on December 5. The tentative agreement is not our new contract, however, unless and until it is ratified by a majority of UCATS members who vote in the ratification election which is being conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA). Ratification ballots were mailed to the home address you have on file with NYU on December 18. If you have not received your ballot, or you need a new ballot for any reason, please call the AAA at 1-800-529-5218 ASAP. Unfortunately, the AAA gave us an incorrect 800 number that was communicated to our 400 members who receive email and caused to to have to delay a postcard mailing to our members who prefer to receive union information by snail-mail. Consequently, we have extended the deadline for the return of ballots to January 26 at 9 am.
If you have already returned your ballot – Thank you!
