On October 24, 2022, the HUCTW Officers and Executive Board sent the Statement of Support for a Fair Raise to 65 senior University leaders (including the deans of all 15 Harvard schools, the EVP, and other key decision-makers). The Statement was signed by more than 3,500 members of our union and more than 800 friends in Harvard the community. It was delivered to Harvard leaders along with a letter urging them to help move the University in the right direction on HUCTW salary negotiations.
You can view the Signed Statement of Support with over 4,300 signatures and dozens of photographs of members on the HUCTW website – it is an impressive showing of union strength and commitment to a fair contract as we continue to fight for meaningful raises that stay ahead of inflation. Thanks to all who took part! Also during the week of October 24, HUCTW and Harvard negotiators agreed to consult with a neutral mediator, as we have many times in the past, to try to help us move forward productively. HUCTW negotiators and leaders remain committed to negotiating a substantial raise program that provides real protection from high inflation.
Looking forward to seeing you at HUCTW Stand-Outs tomorrow and next week! We need continued member support and solidarity to achieve a strong contract!
