WFSE UW Members Ratify Contract

This just in: After two years of bargaining, WFSE's UW members have overwhelmingly ratified the final piece of their 2019-2021 contract.

Once the UW management rejected the "contingent" funding provided by the Legislature, the parties returned to the table to bargain over what funding was indeed provided by the Legislature.

The latest Agreement, which provides a lump sum of $700 for full time employees and $125 for part time workers, also must be approved by the Legislature.

Throughout this battle the UW has steadfastly argued that challenges in their medical system have left them with the inability to pay higher wages. Federation members look forward to addressing these issues in the workplace and in the next round of bargaining.
