UMD Workers Ratify New Contract(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)

Housekeepers, administrators and other workers at the University of Maryland College Park have voted 477-8 to ratify a new three year contract. The agreement will save the workers, members of AFSCME Maryland Council 3, nearly a million dollars in parking costs over the life of the contract through a union-proposed progressive 5-tiered system. Workers also won expanded parental and sick leave, increased shift differential for hours worked between 1AM and 6AM, as well as a 2% raise and merit increases. The contract covers approximately 3,200 workers at U-MD in College Park.
