Chief Negotiator’s Blog: 9.2.2021

UConn-AAUP submitted two proposals today, the administration did not submit any. This is very concerning as we are committed to reaching agreement of a contract to bring to the legislature in February/March of 2022. There was discussion today of a potential timeline over the next several months to get a contract to the legislature and further discussion will happen on September 9th.

  • UConn Files Petition With Labor Board to Remove Head and Associate Coaches

Despite the ill will created by management towards the union in their previous attempt to remove all coaches and performance personnel from the bargaining unit, the administration decided to deepen the divide by filing a petition for the removal of 26 head and associate head coaches with the Labor Board on August 31st – the last eligible day to file .

We must be united in solidarity with our coaches who have been long-time members of the AAUP and firmly stand against these member hostile and union busting tactics displayed by the administration. This is simply a divide and conquer tactic by the administration on the membership. We are confident that the strength of our members will prevail again.

In Solidarity.
