Our First Contract

We negotiated our first contract with the Barnard College administration from Spring 2016 to Spring 2017. BCF-UAW was represented at the bargaining table by an elected Bargaining Committee comprised exclusively of faculty and aided by officers from UAW Local 2110 and Region 9A. The Barnard College administration chose to retain the services of the notoriously unionbusting law firm of Jackson Lewis P.C.

The first, and current, contract between BCF-UAW and the administration of Barnard College runs from April 7, 2017 until June 30, 2022.
