On Thursday, November 17, 2016 the UEU conducted our network-wide vote to ratify our next collective bargaining agreement. We can now report that 85% of members voted to ratify this contract. With the exceptions listed in the side letter, we are now set to implement this agreement in its entirety beginning January 9th, 2017.
The officers of your Union would like to extend a big thank you for all of your unwavering dedication and continued support throughout this process. Now that we have a ratified contract, we can begin to uphold it with fidelity and enjoy the hard won benefits.
CHICAGO: One of Chicago’s largest charter school operators narrowly averted what would have been the first strike of a charter school operator in the nation. Bargaining team members from UEU -- United Educators of UNO -- came to a tentative agreement with the UNO Charter School Network -- at just after 3AM Wednesday -- three hours after the strike deadline. The union and management will meet again Thursday to work out some minor details, and the tentative agreement will then go to the full membership for approval.
