This collective bargaining agreement has been ratified by the UW and GCIU Local 767-M, and now awaits final signatures from both parties. Meanwhile, the online contract has been updated in an effort to reflect the comprehensive agreement reached for the 2013-2015 contract term.
The University shall provide the State's basic benefits package to each eligible employee. This provision shall continue as long as the University at large participates in the State's insurance programs on behalf of other University classified staff employees. The programs currently contain a basic medical, dental, long-term disability, and basic life and accidental death and dismemberment insurance plan. The benefit levels and premium costs of the programs shall be as determined by the appropriate state agency or board or through state-wide collective bargaining, as appropriate, with the Employer paying premiums equal to those paid by the University for all represented classified employees working at the University. Should benefit levels or premium costs of the programs differ among University classified staff employees during the life of this contract, either party may request that the contract be re-opened to discuss the future distribution of the costs of those programs.
