Labor Relations & Collective Bargaining at Stanford is a partnership with two labor unions that represent more than 1,000 staff employees.
Stanford University is proud of its ongoing commitment and working relationships with its two labor unions: SEIU Higher Education Workers Local 2007 and the Stanford Deputy Sheriffs’ Association. We work collaboratively and with mutual respect with both organizations in the areas of the university where employees have elected to have union representation.
SEIU Higher Education Workers Local 2007
The bargaining unit was established in the early 1970s as United Stanford Workers, which later became affiliated with SEIU. The workers represented by this collective bargaining agreement include: all regular staff maintenance employees, laboratory support personnel, custodians, food service employees, audiovisual operators, nonexempt computer operations personnel, production control clerks and tape librarians employed by the Department of Stanford Data Center and the SLAC Computing Services (SDC and SCS), book preservers and all regular staff book warehouse assistants and proofreaders of the Stanford University Press all employed by the University in Northern California. An agreement is in place through August 31, 2024.
