Marching Toward a New Contract

Members of the Research Foundation Central Office chapter gather during their morning break on November 1 for an office “walk-around” to underscore their demands for a new contract. Members wore union T-shirts and carried signs calling on management to reach a fair contract settlement with the chapter. Later that day, union negotiators and management reached a tentative agreement on a five-year contract accord. The bargaining unit held a contract ratification vote on November 19 and approved the new contract by a vote of 76-8.
