Tentative Agreement reached for UW Libraries

After a marathon bargaining session that lasted about 21 hours straight, the union and employer bargaining teams reached a deal around 5:30am on Wednesday, January 25.

UW Libraries and Press union members had planned on beginning a strike at 9:00am; instead, employees reported to work as usual.

The bargaining team will rest first and then prepare materials to move forward with the contract ratification process. The ratification vote is scheduled for Tuesday, January 31.
