About 40% of the unit supported the agreement; about the same amount, and the rest has not been allocated. In the meantime, intense debate and discussion within the union has maintained an 11% increase, which had already been agreed; 60% of the members were not happy. The CPA negotiating team worked to develop the best agreement to protect as many members as possible. Finally, the new classification was introduced. To console the part of the unit that felt dissatisfied with the result, the union was given two days off per month; The right to peer review and a professional development program for non-doctoral members, so that lower-class employees were given the opportunity to move up the ranks.

Below you will find a list of links with the various unions and their respective collective agreements: In the first union elections after collective bargaining, Ricardo Torres was elected president; Ernie Scosseria Northern VP; Mary Valentine South W; Nancy Jorgensen, Secretary and Steven Koletty Treasurer. The two-year contract provided for six items, including salary and benefits, for the reopening of the ancillary years.
The CSU had proposed a new classification system, which covers two-thirds of the unit, which called into question the Union. The PERB decided that the classification was not part of collective bargaining, and the CSU met with us, but refused to intervene in the process. They said that all they would do was negotiate the “effects” of classification on probation, salary and benefits. Relations between the Union and the administration have been so fierce during these negotiations that the CSU has since discussed reclassification systems before they are implemented. The Union considers that once the programme is in place, the programme will no longer be able to be repealed if the university complies with its communication and its negotiating obligation. Unfortunately, the university decided to unilaterally withdraw the program. This action was taken without regard to the potentially irrevocable harm it could cause to members of APC`s bargaining unit or its legal obligation. In 1981, UPC had several thousand members. The role of university staff in the union has increased considerably.
This year, Carol Wallish became secretary of UPC, the first academic assistant to hold a national office within the union. In 1982, collective agreements were organized for national faculty and academic support units. The UPC faculty lost 39 votes out of 13,000 nationally; The “Unit 4” election was won by the academic support group AFT with a comfortable lead. The management of what would soon become APC began to meet immediately to compile our first contract proposal. Negotiations began in early 1983 with Ricardo Torres, Carlos Skeete, Nancy Jorgenson, Steve Koletty, Nancy Slaven, Mary Valentine and Stew Long, who represented academic professionals around the table.
