Bruin on TA Accord

The University of California has reached a tentative contract bargaining agreement with a union representing academic student employees, avoiding a systemwide strike planned for next week. The UC Student-Workers Union, UAW Local 2865, represents more than 12,000 teaching assistants and other University academic student employees. The union has been in contract negotiations with the UC for almost a year and also went on a strike for two days in April.  The contract will end in 2018 and give union workers a 16 percent wage increase over four years, as well as increased childcare assistance and access to lactation facilities...  This agreement leaves just one union in the UC – the Union of Physicians and Dentists – without a contract agreement. The UC has reached agreements with 10 other bargaining units within the past eight months.
