To The UVM Community:

The University has requested formal mediation as the next step in 
collective bargaining with the United Academics union, and the UA has 
agreed to this request.An outside independent mediator must now be 
selected and agreed upon by both parties, as provided by the Vermont 
Labor Laws.

By following this established, orderly, and regular pathway for 
resolution under Vermont Law, the University is confident that there 
will be a reasonable and successful conclusion to the collective 
bargaining process between UVM and the UA.
