Teamsters Local 2010 Ratifies Skilled Trades Collective Bargaining Agreement

The University is proud to report that Teamsters Local 2010 voted to approve the new Skilled Trades collective bargaining agreement and the Agreement is now in effect. Thanks to the collaborative nature of the negotiations, the newly ratified agreement provides robust changes which are beneficial to both parties, some of which are detailed below.

We would like to thank all those whose hard work resulted in this agreement, especially the Teamsters Local 2010 and University bargaining teams.

Lump-Sum Payment and Across the Board Wage Increases

All employees hired before January 1, 2022 will receive a $3,000 lump-sum payment. In addition, all employees will receive the following year wage increases:

  • July 1, 2022:      6%;
  • July 1, 2023:      5%;
  • July 1, 2024:      4%; and
  • July 1, 2025:      4%.

Taken cumulatively, this is a 20.38% wage increase over the term of the contract.

Equity Increases

The parties agreed to equity increases for Flooring Installers, Irrigation Mechanics, Elevator Mechanics, Carpenters, and Painters, as shown in the chart below. The parties also agreed to establish an Equity Review Committee within 30 University business days after contract ratification, the purpose of which will be to review specific job classifications, identified by the University or Teamsters, that may require market-based equity increases in addition to the wage increases included in Article 45 (Wages).
