New York, NY (July 21, 2021) – The Center for Reproductive Rights and Technical, Office and Professional Union Local 2110 UAW, have reached a collective bargaining agreement, the first for Local 2110 and the Center. The four-year contract covers a bargaining unit of 40 non-attorney and non-management employees in the U.S.
“We are pleased to have reached an agreement with UAW Local 2110 and we look forward to continuing our strong relationship with the union and its members,” said Nancy Northup, President and CEO of the Center for Reproductive Rights. “This collective bargaining agreement reflects our values and positions our employees and organization for success in the future.”
Maida Rosenstein, President of UAW Local 2110, said, “Our members organized to form a union last year because they care about the mission of the Center for Reproductive Rights and believed that through collective bargaining, they could secure a fair contract that would meet the needs of our members and build a stronger workplace. We are proud to have achieved this with our first contract, which advances compensation, benefits, workplace protections, and more. We look forward to working with CRR to build on this progress together.”
About the Center for Reproductive Rights
The Center for Reproductive Rights uses the power of law to advance reproductive rights as fundamental human rights around the world. Headquartered in New York City, the non-profit, non-partisan organization has regional offices in Bogota, Geneva, Nairobi, and Washington, DC. The Center’s litigation and advocacy work, combined with expertise in the use of constitutional international, and comparative human rights law, have transformed how reproductive rights are understood by courts, governments, and human rights bodies. Since its founding in 1992, the Center has played a key role in securing legal victories in the U.S., Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, and Eastern Europe on issues including access to life-saving obstetrics care, contraception, safe abortion services, and comprehensive sexuality information. In the U.S., the Center has been involved in every major abortion rights case argued before the U.S. Supreme Court, including winning the most recent Supreme Court case June Medical Services v. Russo in 2020. Less than a year after that victory, the Center is back at the Supreme Court challenging an abortion ban in Mississippi in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
