UC President Napolitano: Stop Discrimination against Administrative Support Workers

To be delivered to Janet Napolitano, University of the University of California

Petition Statement

In the name of justice and fairness, we call on you to immediately end the policy of excluding administrative support workers from the incentive and bonus programs the University provides to other workers. Our membership has earned the right to receive these awards, and their hard work deserves to be recognized! We are all UC employees and our work counts!
There are currently 855 signatures. NEW goal - We need 1,000 signatures!

Petition Background

A great University should be a force for fairness, but that has not been the case with the treatment of the 14,000 Teamsters whose hard work makes the University of California function. The University is all too happy to accept our members’ contribution to its success. But when it comes time to hand out well-earned incentive and bonus awards, the University excludes administrative support workers.
To make matters worse, managers dishonestly blame the Union for the University’s decision to exclude our members, falsely claiming that the Union Contract prevents them from including the Teamsters in incentive and bonus programs.
The truth is that the Teamsters Contract clearly permits our members to be included in incentive awards. Yet the University has systematically excluded administrative support wrokers from receiving incentive and bonus awards it gives to other employees. Such insidious discrimination has no place at the University of California.
