Over 96% of respondents to the ratification vote agreed to cement the Tentative Agreement, resulting in the first contract between the SWC and Columbia.
On Friday, the Student Workers of Columbia announced it has reached a tentative agreement with the University on a four-year contract, bringing an end to its 10-week strike.
Columbia’s new proposal, while showing movement towards SWC’s desires on many key issues, still does not meet the majority of the Union’s demands.
This morning, the Student Workers of Columbia began a day-long attempt to “shut down campus” as the strike continues, following a message from University administration saying that striking workers may lose their teaching appointments for the Spring 2022 semester.
The new offer includes multiple concessions to the SWC-UAW’s demands while falling short on others.
