UC, Union Officials Reach Contract Deal To Avert Strike
Last week, the University of California and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees reached a tentative agreement on a four-year contract for 8,300 service workers averting a potential five-day strike affecting UC's 10 campuses and five medical centers. The proposed agreement includes annual 3% raises through 2016, a proposal to ensure safe staffing levels and a requirement that employees contribute 9% of their pay to pension and retirement health care benefits programs.
