Contract Negotiations Updates
We have two ratified CBAs; the first expires December 31, 2023, and the second CBA expires on June 30, 2026. Contract negotiations updates will be posted as there are new developments to share.
What is the Contract?
Contrary to a common misperception, the current contract is not “the Union’s contract.” The document represents an agreement on every point therein by both the administration and the faculty of The University of Akron.
The collective bargaining agreements are in effect now through June 30, 2026.
CONTRACT 4.0: Agreement in effect from July 2015 through June 2016
