Woo-hoo! 1st Teamster contract ratified for 13K UC workers

Big news about a big Teamster victory: University of California employees ratified a first contract that will give all 13,000 of them raises for the next five years!

The UC employees voted to become members of Teamsters Local 2010 in Berkeley last year after working without a contract since 2008.

The employees include administrative assistants, clerks, library assistants, cashiers, public safety dispatchers and child care teachers. They work at all 10 campuses and one laboratory of California's university system.

Their wage increases will equal between 20 percent and 28 percent of their annual earnings. Given California’s budget crisis and America's weak economy, a contract with guaranteed wage increases is a very big deal. Said Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa,

Our representatives worked tirelessly to win the wage increases, which are guaranteed in the agreement. These hardworking clerical employees deserve no less. 

 It's great news.
