United Grad Workers, (UGW) Union Picketing  Event for Basic Non-Discrimination Protections 
Thursday, July 14th from 8 AM to 9 AM at the corner of University Blvd SE and Basehart SE

Notice from UGW:
UNM is still refusing to agree to basic non-discrimination protections in our UGW union contract and insisting that existing state and federal laws are sufficient protection from harassment and discrimination. We know state and federal laws can change at any time and that UNM ignores the rampant discrimination happening to grad workers NOW regardless of existing laws and policies. The non-discrimination protections we are proposing are standard in higher ed contracts across New Mexico and the country. Our next negotiating sessions begin the morning of July 14th.

We will be picketing from 8-9 am on July 14th at the corner of University Blvd SE and Basehart SE (next to the building where we will be negotiating).

Join us to show UNM's negotiating team we won't settle for a contract that doesn't protect all graduate workers' rights!

Fourth Quarter 3% Increase Beginning April 1, 2022
The UNM Coalition of Labor Unions had a successful legislative session. We made this unit’s voices heard in Santa Fe at the Roundhouse. In response, the legislature passed a bifurcated raise for education employees. One part of the increase is to happen during the 4th quarter for FY 22 and the second part is to happen in July of 2022 after the union negotiates the terms.

In March, the US-UNM union negotiated a salary increase for the bargaining unit. The salary increases afford all qualified employees a 3% increase starting April 1, 2022. A bargaining unit employee must have been hired before January 1, 2022, to be qualified for the raise.
