What is a bargaining committee?
A bargaining committee is a democratically elected group of workers who make contract demands on behalf of their union membership.
Six academic student workers (ASWs) were elected in September 2017 to represent the SENS-UAW membership and craft proposals based on their needs. Hundreds of ASWs have given their input through one-on-one conversations, open-air meetings, and our widely-circulated bargaining survey. Although our demands will develop during negotiations and with ongoing input and support from members, the responses so far have given us a clear idea of our members’ priorities.
