Dear Colleague,

This week’s survey is focused on Job Security at UC. Would you take a few minutes to fill out the survey now?

After our first bargaining session with UC, it’s clear that gathering specifics of AR experiences will be essential to making progress on all our bargaining demands. Winning improvements on job security — including during funding gaps — is crucial to making academic research and AR positions better, but it will only happen with the participation of all ARs in the bargaining process. Please check out the ARU / UAW 5810 bargaining page for more info and email arunited@academicresearchersunited.org if you would like to get involved and/or would like to discuss job security in more detail.

And thank you again for taking a few minutes to fill out the job security survey (and if you haven’t yet done so, please also fill out the career advancement survey)!

In solidarity,

Academic Researchers United / UAW Local 5810 Bargaining Team
