Update from our 8.7 bargaining session

Dear UChicago Faculty Forward Members:

Your Union Bargaining Team met with Management again today, Monday, August 7, 2017. Two members took us up on the opportunity to join us for negotiations—each had planned to stay two hours and both stayed most of the day.

Eleven proposals went back and forth—five new proposals and six counter proposals. The rate of negotiations is accelerating and we look forward a flurry of activity once fall quarter starts.

Our next bargaining session is Wednesday, September 13th 9-5. We are encouraging members to join us for these bargaining sessions. Please let us know if you’d like to attend on September 13th by emailing anyone below by September 10th.

Faculty from the metro area are hosting a picnic on Thursday, August 17th 3:00-6:00 at Humboldt Park (grassy area right next to boathouse café) so that we can get to together as a community of educators, relax, and share updates on our various union efforts. Please RSVP by following this link: https://goo.gl/forms/jf4LLKEhDdDLnoPf1
