UW Tentative Agreements Reached on Wage Increase, Vaccine Mandate

The WFSE UW Bargaining Team has reached two important tentative agreements (TAs) with the University of Washington. Scroll down for voting information.

UW employees went without a raise in 2021 and many employees faced incredibly difficult working conditions, from adjusting to telework to the risk and strain of frontline essential work. Our UW bargaining team, backed by the power of our members, fought hard for significant wage increases.

Once ratified, employees will begin seeing these increases in July 2022. Learn more here.

The tentative agreement reached on the UW vaccine mandate is based on the WFSE General Government agreement, recently ratified by General Government members. It will help guide employees through the vaccination mandate and/or medical or religious accommodation process. Learn more here.

The team is endorsing both agreements and encouraging you to vote "yes".
