Brandeis University workers ratify new contract

Congrats to our members at Brandeis University in Waltham for ratifying a new contract. They won $1.50 wage increases that will bring the full rate for almost all positions up to $20 an hour by the end of the contract. We also secured lower health care costs – with savings of more than $1500 for family coverage next year.

Our work raising standards in university food service in the Boston area is not over, nor at Brandeis, where on the same day as the ratification 40 workers held a delegation to fight hours cuts.
