Members of the UCATS Bargaining Team will be on hand to answer your questions and receive feedback about the TENTATIVE CONTRACT.

The UCATS Bargaining Team worked very hard to bring you this agreement. We had 17 bargaining sessions with NYU, each of which was preceded by a prep meeting, 4 Saturday training/strategic planning meetings since January, organized 3 rallies, and spent countless lunch hours distributing leaflets, union buttons, swag and getting information to you. We kept our website updated and substantially grew our member email list. Our organizing staff, Linda Wambaugh and Leo Sanchez, did a fantastic job keeping us all pulling in the same direction.

It is now up to you, the members of UCATS, to vote to ratify (or not ratify) the tentative agreement. The ratification vote will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association. Paper ballots will be mailed to your home the week of Dec. 18 with instructions. The deadline for returning ballots will be in mid-January so you will have plenty of time to consider your decision.

The UCATS Executive Council strongly recommends that you vote to ratify the tentative agreement by checking the “YES-ACCEPTED” box on your ballot.
