UCLA maintained the previously proposed equity increases for Flooring Installers, Irrigation Mechanics, Elevator Mechanics, Carpenters, and Painters, as shown below. However, the University 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).
