Negotiations Are Over: Time to Ratify the Contract!

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

We're glad to announce the end of contract negotiations between the RA Union and SUNY Research Foundation! Members can look forward to the new contract to take effect only after it's been ratified by the majority of RA Union voting members. To take a look at the contract and ask questions to our union's lawyer, staff organizer, and bargaining team members, attend one of our upcoming open meetings! We'll be happy to clarify and discuss all developments in the contract, including the across-the-board raises, employment terms and conditions, and more.

Here is a list of our upcoming meetings and ratification voting sessions. Be sure to mark these in your calendar so that your input can be heard when we vote on whether or not to pass this new contract!
