First Contract with Fordham

Just over two years after voting to join CWA Local 1104 and nineteen months of bargaining and member action, we have reached a tentative agreement for our first union contract.

This agreement is the result of membership solidarity, patience, strength, and action. When we stand together, we win. Together, we fought for a contract that will set industry standards in several areas and includes significant gains for every part of our membership—and for those who come after us.

Over the past nineteen months, this university has seen an unprecedented mobilization by its grad workers. We organized. We made connections across departments and rallied both undergrads and faculty. We wrote letters, spoke to the press, and told our stories. We marched, protested, walked the picket lines, and made this university hear us. This hasn’t been an easy road, and there’s more work to be done, but this contract represents a massive shift at Fordham.

All members will vote on ratifying the agreement. Local 1104 will be in touch within the next few days with more details about the ratification vote.
