Negotiations Continue On
Unit 99 Election

Representatives from the University of California and the University Professional and Technical Employees (UPTE) are continuing to meet and discuss issues relative to the upcoming election for Administrative Professional employees, known collectively as Unit 99. Among the subjects being debated is the makeup of the unit, including which classifications should qualify for inclusion. An election by affected employees to determine whether or not they want to be represented by UPTE probably won’t take place before early next year. Updates will be posted on the UC "At Your Service" website, as well as the Lab's Human Resources website. Questions can be addressed to [email protected]
