The Santa Cruz campus employs approximately 192 Academic Researchers positions. The University of California has voluntarily recognized the UAW 5810 as the exclusive representative of 4,110 academic researchers. The recognition follows campus consultation and multiple meetings with the UAW 5810 on the understanding of titles and positions that belong in the bargaining unit, ultimately resulting in a stipulated agreement. Bargaining for a first contract will commence in May after the recognition posting and the sunshine processes are complete.
