The more ARs who participate in our Union, the more collective power we all have. Our ability to enforce the many rights and protections we have won and expand them in the future depends on every AR becoming a Union member.
If you voted to ratify the contract, that doesn’t automatically make you a member. You still need to sign up for membership to participate in and strengthen our Union of Academic Researchers. Each and every member makes us stronger!
It’s up to Academic Researchers to continue to build our union so that we can:
- Identify and address problems in the workplace, i.e., make sure UC holds up their end of the bargain;
- Build power and resources to negotiate again in 2022;
- Advocate at UC and beyond on issues most important to researchers (research funding, parental leave, research funding, climate change, etc.).
Member dues are 1.44% of your pay and are deducted automatically. Dues deductions won’t begin until the contractual wage increases go into effect in January. For frequently asked questions about dues, please click here.
