UC, lecturers agree on contract

By
From page A4 | December 13, 2013 |

Ninety-eight percent of union-represented lecturers have voted to ratify a contract deal with the University of California. The two-year deal includes a 3.5 percent wage increase for 2013-14.

The American Federation of Teachers represents more than 3,000 lecturers systemwide.

The deal also includes:

* Moving the minimum retirement age from 50 to 55 and maximum payout from 60 to 65, which matches rules approved by the UC Board of Regents for non-represented employees;

* An increase in professional development funding from $135 to $200 annually per full-time equivalent lecturer;

* A stipulation that if non-unionized academic employees — including senate faculty — receive a wage increase next year, lecturers will receive the same increase.

UC also agreed to notify the union when launching new systemwide online courses, which would allow the union to file grievances or bargain over aspects of courses it believes violate a memorandum of understanding.

“Our lecturers play a key role in our instructional mission, and we are delighted to have this agreement in place,” said Dwaine Duckett, vice president of systemwide human resources, in a news release. “This is a great example of working through the issues together so we can focus on continuing to advance the university’s mission together.”

UC also reached agreements with nurses, librarians and police officers — about 12,500 employees in all — over the past two months.

UC’s largest union, the 22,000-member American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 3299, which represents food service, custodial and hospital care workers, held a strike on Nov. 20.

It followed a formal complaint from the state Public Employment Relations Board documenting instances of threats and coercion against workers before and during a strike by the same union in May.

United Auto Workers Local 2865, which represents about 13,000 student workers systemwide, held a sympathy strike.
