Ramp Up Bargaining Campaign…Member Workshops, Media and More…
While the pace of negotiations has slowed for the time being, librarians are using the break from the table to build our bargaining campaign and prepare for the next phase of negotiations. Each campus is holding campaign planning workshops in December and early January where members will plan concrete local steps for winning a great contract. Here’s more on these important workshops, including scheduled dates. Our negotiating team will meet for a full day on December 15th to work on proposals and gear up for bargaining dates scheduled through March. Meanwhile, our campaign continues to generate great media coverage with this interview on KALX and an article in AFT Voices..
Also the Librarian organizing committees on each campus are hosting a two-hour workshop where librarians will develop a durable campaign plan for the next stage of negotiations as outlined at the UC-AFT Librarians blog here:
