University Seeks to Resume Negotiations with Local 2110
ocal 2110 UAW, which represents approximately 800 clerical workers on the Morningside and Health Sciences campus, went on strike on Oct. 16. At press time, it was not known when the next bargaining session would take place.
"The University is eager to resume negotiations," said Executive Vice President for Administration Emily Lloyd. "Our main objective is to get a contract that is fair to Local 2110 and the University and consistent with our other recent contract settlements. We hope that this will be a short strike and we will be making every attempt to keep services functioning as close to normal as possible."
