UW – WFSE Negotiations Recap for August 10

During the third and fourth virtual sessions for the renewal of the collective bargaining agreement between the UW and Washington Federation of State Employees, the parties exchanged proposals to extend the 2019 – 2021 agreement to include the upcoming 2021 – 2023 contract cycle. Due to the unprecedented economic crisis facing the state of Washington and the UW as a result of the pandemic, the Employer has proposed an extension with only minor housekeeping edits in hopes of coming to quick resolution.

Recaps are published online on the UW Labor Relations website. The next UW and WFSE bargaining session is scheduled for August 17 and will be held virtually.
