We are happy to announce that the union ratification process is complete, and the new Higher Ed contract has been ratified! This win was made possible by Higher Ed union members like you who shared their thoughts in bargaining surveys, signed petitions, attended virtual meetings, and finally, cast their votes in support of this new contract.

Here are a few highlights of the 2022-26 Higher Ed contract:

  • 5.6% cost of living adjustment over the next 7 months, plus steps if you’re not topped out.
  • Additional raises, also called “selective salary increases,” for dozens of classifications covering more than 40% of members. See article 21 in our contract details document for the list of classifications that will see a selective increase.
  • $15/hour minimum wage across all universities.
  • $1,050 – $1,500 (minus taxes) in pandemic pay for essential workers.
