Labor Relations (LR) represents the University of Alaska’s Board of Regents and administration in its relations with union and non-union organizations and employees. This includes labor contract negotiation and administration; resolution of disputes and grievances; responses to union campaigns; administrative training and development; and other matters of employee concern. In these pursuits, LR is an honest broker between the interests of the university, labor organizations, and employees.
Due to the recent U.S Supreme Court Decision in Janus v. AFSCME Local 31 the University will no longer be able to enforce Union Security provisions in our contracts. Please see the memo below for specific information.Agency
