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 will determine initial staffing and wages in the event of new machines, new processes, new methods or new job classifications and/or reclassifications which upon installation or implementation shall involve craft employees covered by this Agreement. Upon request by the Union, a joint committee will meet to decide if the University's initial staffing and wage determinations are proper. The committee will be comprised of four members, two appointed by each party. The committee shall review application of the equipment, processes, methods or job classifications within the printing industry locally. Any wage changes implemented as a result of the committee's decision shall be retroactive to the date of the beginning of operation of such equipment, processes, methods, or implementation of new job classifications and/or reclassifications. Should the issue remain unresolved ninety days after it is first considered by the joint committee, it then may be submitted to PERC for fact finding mediation.
