UC offered an enhanced wage proposal for service employees — on top of excellent health care and retirement benefits — during the June 20-21, 2017 bargaining session with AFSCME.

The university presented a comprehensive offer to settle these negotiations. AFSCME rejected the offer as well as future bargaining dates.

UC's Latest Offer
Enhanced Wage Offer

A step increase — 2 percent — in each year of a multi-year contract for all eligible employees.

At the last bargaining session, UC improved its offer by adding an annual 2 percent lump sum payment for employees at the top of the salary range.

This enhancement would ensure that service workers, even those above the salary range, would receive an increase, and that UC service salaries remain at the top of the market.

Excellent Health Care Excellent health benefits at the same rates other UC employees pay. A typical service employee would pay $32 a month for themselves and their children.
Quality Retirement Benefits

Current employees will see no change in their retirement benefits.

Future employees hired after a new contract is ratified will have a choice between a traditional pension and a 401(k)-style plan. Both options provide valuable retirement income. Future employees can choose based on their needs and preferences, including their age, how long they plan to work at UC and their personal investing style.
