Yale University and the union representing its security officers, the International Union of Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America, have reached a contract that will run through January 2015.
The contract for the 140 full- and part-time security officers provides annual across-the-board raises of 2.5% each year, as well as certain adjustments for shift differentials.The contract also contains language on operational
improvements, as well as strategies to contain costs in areas such as health care.
The agreement was reached after approximately 15 bargaining sessions.
“The sessions were conducted in an atmosphere of mutual respect, with a desire to understand market rates and operational standards for security officers as well as an understanding of and respect for the critical nature of the work done by Yale security officers,” said Janet Lindner, associate vice president for administration. “We believe the contract contains provisions that are fair and reasonable for the University and the security officers represented by the union.”
