Local 1942 - We Are Still Here!!!
Local 1942 represents UW Hospital & Clinics authority employees whether there is a contract or not. Together our voices will be heard by management. Workers are encouraged to contact us with questions or concerns about policies that are unfair or that are not being carried out in a fair way.
We are a democratically run membership organization. Monthly meetings are held on the last Thursday of each month at 5:00 pm, currently at our Local 1942 office at 4513 Vernon Blvd, Suite 106 in Madison. The best way to ensure that the union represents your views is to become a member and participate in meetings. That’s where decisions are made.

How To Use Union Peer Support
Under UWHC policies 9.54 and 9.55, you have the right to select a Peer Support of your choice to attend an Investigatory Meeting or a meeting to appeal disciplinary action. Tell your supervisor that you want a peer support to accompany you and let them know as soon as possible who that will be.
If you already know a union Peer Support, contact him or her as soon as possible so they can request to be released from their supervisor. If you don’t know a Peer Support or your first choice is not available, contact the office ASAP 608-233-1942 or email@example.com.
The policies state that supervisors should be willing to accommodate the schedule needs of your chosen peer support, but if this is not happening, contact our office right away.
