University of Wisconsin Academic Staff Document #310a
Madison passed on March 10, 2003


Resolution in support of the immediate ratification of all represented employee 2001-2003 contracts

Whereas, The University of Wisconsin System provides invaluable education and skills to Wisconsin residents, enriches the cultural life of the state, and has been a benefit to the state's economy even in difficult times;

Whereas, Unionized state workers, including teaching and project assistants, technical and custodial staff, administrative staff, and trades people play essential roles in fulfilling the mission of the UW System, but have not received pay raises since June 2001;

Whereas, These unions bargained their 2001-2003 contracts in good faith with the University and the state's Department of Employee Relations (DER), and that this good faith bargaining resulted in fair contracts ratified by union members; and

Whereas, The Joint Committee on Employment Relations has directed DER to renegotiate the 2001-2003 agreements, therefore be it

Resolved, That Academic Staff Assembly of the University of Wisconsin-Madison urges the state legislature to approve all state worker contracts that have been agreed upon by the unions and the Department of Employee relations.
