UConn-AAUP Update: April 1, 2022

TENTATIVE AGREEMENT RATIFIED BY BOT

On Wednesday, March 30, 2022, the UConn Board of Trustees approved our tentative agreement. The Agreement will now be filed, along with Agreements from the 33 other state employee bargaining units, at the General Assembly for funding. The filing is scheduled for Friday, April 1, 2022 at 3:30 pm. This filing will now start the 30-day window for the General Assembly to vote on funding the Agreements.

The Appropriations Committee will hold a public hearing on April 18, 2022, prior to making its recommendation to the House and Senate Chambers. It is extremely important that our members contact their legislators to make sure the contracts get approved.

All SEBAC coalition bargaining unit members are urged to:

  • Follow this Action Network link to write to their legislator:
  • Attend the April 18, 2022 hearing. (More information on the time will follow) We need to show members of the Appropriations Committee that we are watching and will note any grandstanding or opposition to the contracts.

In Solidarity
