ATTENTION

The Free college Benefit has been placed on hold for new enrollees. Hopefully, this will not be affecting current students.

The department of Education has asked the college to put the program on hold while they work out some issues with how paperwork and admissions gets processed.

We apologize for the inconvenience and stress this puts on our members and their families, unfortunately we are at the mercy of the Department of education and the College’s lawyers while they handle this issue at hand and hopefully quickly.

As soon as we know more, we will post an update.

Important Bargaining Update: 12/1/2021

After bargaining for 30 hours on the Final day of the contract a lot of progress has been made. The Employer and the Union have come to some Tentative Agreements, but more proposals have been dropped. In the very early morning hours on December 1, 2021 the Employer and the Union met for another joint session.

The Employer proposed a wage increase of, 0.25% in Year 1, 0% in Year 2, and 0% in Year 3. In efforts to get things moving the employer dropped the raise in out-of-pocket costs, and the outpatient hospital co-pay proposals.

We were not surprised at the insulting and incredibly low offer for wage increases as this is the current MO in HealthPartners Negotiations in recent Bargaining over the years. We just need to keep pushing back.

A supermajority of workers at the e-commerce platform -- including product developers, engineers, designers, support, marketing and operations staff -- signed union authorization cards and have publicly signed onto a voluntary recognition letter delivered to Matt Wigham and Eric Turner, co-founders of the company.

In their letter requesting voluntary recognition, Big Cartel employees said "forming a union will promote transparency and collaboration, ensure equity, increase staff well-being and retention, and add to the long list of reasons we choose to work at Big Cartel."
