This proposal showed significant movement from the UCLA’s last proposal, a summary of which can be found here.

Additionally, UCLA agreed to provide $500 to each employee to be reimbursed for training and development expenses.  UCLA also agreed to increase the reimbursement for safety shoes to $250 with a $10 annual increase during the life of the agreement.

The parties will meet again on Friday, July 15, at which time the University hopes to receive an economic counterproposal from Teamsters.
