TTC Response (Ongoing)

UFAS members have organized throughout the duration of the Title and Total Compensation project to collect staff concerns, relay those concerns to UW-Madison leadership, and increase transparency. These efforts have included surveying staff and drafting statements, and even most recently pushing for the initial appeals deadline to be extended from December 2021 to February 2022.

Moral Restart (Summer 2020)

Together with our fellow unions in the University Labor Council, UFAS spoke out in protest of UW-Madison’s dangerous reopening plan in August 2020 with worker panels, a socially-distanced protest, interviews and listening sessions. Instead of a “Smart Restart” that prioritized budgets over people, we advocated for a worker-centered plan that put safety first. As the pandemic continues, we continue: to push for accommodations for high-risk workers, remote work flexibility, and equity-centered reopening plans.
