Uconn Ucpea Agreement

The University of Connecticut (UConn) and the University of Connecticut Professional Employees Association (UCPEA) have recently reached an agreement on a new contract that will cover approximately 1,900 employees.

The new agreement includes a number of important provisions, including a 2.75% annual salary increase for the next four years. This increase is in addition to step increases that employees may be eligible for based on their years of service.

The agreement also includes a new provision for paid parental leave. Under the new contract, new parents will be eligible for up to six weeks of fully paid leave following the birth or adoption of a child. This is a significant improvement over the previous contract, which only provided for unpaid leave.

In addition, the new agreement includes improvements to healthcare benefits. The university will continue to pick up the majority of the cost of healthcare premiums, and there will be no increase to employee premiums or deductibles.

The new contract also includes a number of language improvements, which are designed to clarify and streamline the terms of the agreement. This will make it easier for employees and management to understand and abide by the terms of the contract.

Overall, the new UConn UCPEA agreement is a significant improvement over the previous contract. The salary increases, paid parental leave, and improvements to healthcare benefits will help to ensure that UConn can attract and retain top-tier talent. At the same time, the language improvements will help to reduce confusion and misunderstandings, allowing employees and management to focus on their jobs.
