Andrea Terrillion will serve as the new director of Yale labor relations starting May 20, Vice President for Human Resources and Administration Michael Peel announced last week. Terrillion will work with Jane Savage, the director of the Best Practices initiative, which seeks to improve productivity and collaboration between Yale and its two labor unions, Locals 34 and 35. Terrillion has served as director of labor relations and legal studies at Cornell and as a labor and employment lawyer in New York. Last week, Locals 34 and 35 ratified new three-year contracts nine months early, and Yale and union leaders attributed the historic early agreement to Best Practices.
