Powerful billionaires are using the Supreme Court case Janus v. AFSCME to further rig the economy against working families. We won’t let any court case stand in the way of our fight for the good union jobs our families, communities, and country need. (Learn more about the the Janus v. AFSCME case from this link provided by our sisters and brothers from SEIU Local 1199.)

One way to show you’re standing up for  your co-workers, your community, and yourself through your union is to take the “Union Challenge!” (also referred to as the Norma Rae Challenge).

Here’s what you can do:
1. Grab a piece of paper, cardboard, poster board, or anything you can write on, and write “UNION” on the sign!
2. Raise the sign above your head—you can stand on your desk or chair, or in your work place.
3. Have a friend take your photo.
4. Upload to your favorite social media site & share it using the hashtags #Union and #WeRise.

Take a look at a number of your fellow 4Cs sisters and brothers below who have already taken the challenge.

The 4Cs 2016-2021 Collective Bargaining Agreement is now available online here. It is also available on the BOR website at http://www.ct.edu/hr/labor#unclassified.

Looking for the Part-Timers Agreement? Jump to page 122 of the Contract (or numbered page 116).

Looking for the salary grids? Jump to page 79 of the Contract (or numbered page 70).

Thank you for your patience throughout this year. As you see on the BOR page, many of the bargaining units still have not finalized their Contracts. Please note that while the Contract is available online, we are going to having a waiting period before printing in case any small errors were missed. If you note anything, please email Ellen Benson.

The 4Cs will also be further formatting the Contract to make the online-version more user-friendly with internal links and an index; we will notify the membership when the document is ready.
